Bible Minute: Separated from God

In the beginning when God created the first
two people, Adam and Eve, they had intimate friendship and fellowship with God and lived
in a paradise called the Garden of Eden. They were innocent and guilt free having never
committed any kind of wrong doing. They were free of fear, blame, worry, regret
or any kind of negative emotion that people experience now. In this paradise, there was only one law;
there was a certain tree whose fruit Adam and Eve were forbidden to eat. Unfortunately, Adam and Eve chose to eat the
fruit of this tree violating God’s law. Then, everything changed. Because they broke God’s law, their close
friendship with Him was severed and they were expelled from the Garden of Eden. Not only that, but now they would grow old
and die. God had warned them that the consequences
of eating from this tree would be death. God gave them the ability to choose and they
chose the path of disobedience. The Bible teaches us that our wrong doing
separates us from God. The prophet Isaiah said, “But your iniquities
have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that
He will not hear” (Isaiah 59:2). Furthermore, the Bible also teaches us that
when we do wrong, we “earn” death (Romans 6:23). God still loved Adam and Eve as much as ever,
but He could no longer commune with them as before. He couldn’t go on as if nothing had happened. Just like Adam and Eve, we all choose to disobey
God. Our disobedience to God causes us to be out
of fellowship with Him just like Adam and Eve. Just like them we will also die because death
is the ultimate punishment for our disobedience. In our present condition, eternal life in
friendship with God is out of the question. There is a price that must be paid when we
do wrong; that price is eternal death. But God is merciful. Because God loves us, He has provided a way
for us to be reconciled to Him and avoid our death penalty. If we take advantage of His reconciliation
we will be granted fellowship with Him. We’ll still experience death, but for those
who have been reconciled to Him, He has promised to one day raise us from the dead nevermore
to die. The reconciled have been promised an eternal
and immortal future with Him.

Where's the Resurrection? Nobody is saved by the death of Jesus Christ. It's through the restoration of life that one is saved; born again. The cross is necessary for salvation, but not salvation itself.
