Sin separates us from God.
“None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God.” Romans 3:10-11
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23 Good works cannot save us.”For by works of the law no human being will be justified in His sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin.” Romans 3:20
Jesus paid the penalty for sin.
“For our sake He made Him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.”
2 Corinthians 5:21
We must put our faith in Christ to have forgiveness of sin and eternal life.
“If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
