The Problem: Our sin has broken our relationship with God.
"But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear." Isa. 59:2 NIV
God's Solution: He took the initiative to bring us back to Himself.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16 NIV
... "God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation." 2 Cor. 5:19 NIV
