Separation from God


​In order for Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross to be valid, He had to experience the full extent of suffering for the sins of all mankind. This meant being  completely separated from God. To be separated from God is to be separated from all that is good. “Everything good comes from God. Every perfect gift is from him…” James 1:17
Jesus, by suffering the consequences of the sins of humanity, despite living a blameless sinless life, became the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. No other person or deed  could have covered the cost. He took our damnation and turned it into salvation and the most amazing part of it all is that it is a free gift to each of us. “If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.” Romans 10:9-10
God is love, and He has shown us that, “There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” John 15:13
