Genesis 3:23-24; Deuteronomy 31:16-18; Micah 3:4; Romans 1:18-21; Galatians 5:19-21; Ephesians 2:12; 4:18; Colossians 1:19-22
But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear.
Jesus spent His time on this earth seeking out sinners so that He might share the good news with them. The Pharisees and scribes grumbled against Jesus because He spent time with sinners, yet Jesus taught them that even one lost person is of great value to God. Just like a shepherd will leave his flock to find one lost sheep, Jesus came to the earth to save the lost. We are the lost sheep in need of Jesus.
Everything was perfect in the world until we broke it. When humanity chose to sin, the world that was once perfect became messed up and broken. Sin is ultimately a rejection of God Himself. Because of sin bad things happen, we experience all types of pain, and death has come into the world. All of creation groans and wishes that the world be perfect and good like it was before.
