Every human being is born "out of sync" with the God of the Bible. Sin has created a vast chasm between God and man. We cannot build our way across through any efforts we might attempt. But the problem goes even deeper. Sin has placed us into a position of antagonism. God is Holy, we are sinful. The only hope we have of knowing God is to deal with sin in such a way that the antagonism is removed and the chasm is bridged. The Bible clearly states that "salvation is of the Lord." It is God alone who saves, through Jesus Christ.
God Himself solved the problem by sending Jesus Christ as the only solution. It is in Christ's death on the cross that we find the means of satisfying God, paying the overwhelming debt that sin created, and bridging the gap between man and God. When we agree with God's word that we are in fact guilty of sin (Romans 3:10 & 3:23), in desperate need of a change of heart & mind (repentance), and that in trusting Christ we are made right with God by His power alone (Romans 5:1 & 6:23; John 3:16 & 3:36) we receive God's kind of nature (II Peter 1:4) and are born again possessing eternal life. Jesus said in John 17:3 "And this is eternal life, that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent."
