God’s Greatest Desire

God’s Pursuit of Mankind

From the dawn of creation, God has desired to have a relationship with mankind. We read of God walking in the Garden of Eden in the cool of the day desiring to fellowship and be in communion with Adam and Eve (Genesis 3:8-9). While the Bible is a history book and a book of theology, it is chiefly a record of God’s desire and pursuit of a relationship of love with humanity.

Sin Breaks the Connection with God

God created the human race and His greatest desire is to be connected with His creation – not by force or coercion, but by love. Adam and Eve disobeyed God and their sin separated them from the close communion that they had previously experienced. Sin always breaks the connection between man and God. However, God was not content to leave us separated by sin and unrighteousness, sentenced to death.Read more

Bible Study – Sin

Scripture Reading:

Romans 6:13-18 

Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. 

For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. 

What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. 

Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? 

But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.

Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.Read more

Living Free from Sin

Many professing Christians say that everybody sins “more or less” every day. Can a Christian live without sinning?

Yes. True Christians not only should, but must live without sinning. This is not possible through one’s own strength or ability. It takes the divine power of God through Jesus Christ to enable an individual to live without sin. Sin is a word that is used in many ways and it is important to understand the differences between mistakes, areas of growth, and sin.Read more
