There is not one in this world who is worthy of being in the presence of the Lord. No, not one. We are all destined to be cast into the fiery pit without the saving grace of the Lord. Yes, it is true that we are all creations of the Lord and as such His children and yes He is a loving Father Who wishes that we all come to Him. But, sin came into the world and altered His perfect creation taking us from His presence and putting us at odds with God our Father. Due to our sinful nature, we were not able to reconcile ourselves with the Lord so Jesus came into the world to become our reconciliation with the Lord.

Jesus, who was fully God and fully man, put aside His Godliness so He could show us how to live and to teach us how to follow Him to the Father. Because He trod the earth as a man, was tempted as a man and resisted satan, lived a perfect life, died on the Cross for our sins and rose again on the third day, we now have a Way back to the Father.

John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
