The wage of sin is death. In short SIN=DEATH
When we say death, it means our spirit is dying and being separated from God.
Adam chose to sin and that sin separate Adam from God.
This was a big deal.
And the most important thing for God is to be close with Adam.
What does this mean for us?
That same sin that separated Adam from God separates us from God too.
With this sin in the way, it is impossible to be with God.
The good news:
God had a plan to fix this huge problem called sin but in order to beat sin, you first must beat death.
So that is the reason sin is a big deal.
You can receive Christ right now by faith through prayer.
Prayer is talking to God. God knows your heart and is not so concerned with your words as He is with the attitude of your heart.
The following is a suggested prayer. If this prayer expresses the desire of your heart, then you can pray this prayer right now and Christ will come into your life, as He promised.
Lord Jesus, I need You. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of the throne of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be.
