The Old Testament was written to show us that we were sinners and separated from God. In Psalm 51, it says that we were born in sin. Because of the sin of Adam and Eve, we are separated from God until we repent of our sins. God doesn’t come to us with a big stick, ready to beat us up because of sin. He speaks softly and in love to woe us back home. God wants us to choose Him. This is what glorifies God. That understanding that we are separated from God is placed in our heart from the beginning. It’s why people fight against God. They see their sin and don’t like or want to see. The bible says man saw the light but loved darkness instead. It’s not easy to live in sin. There is so much destruction in our lives because of sin. The devil came to steal, kill and destroy. He is the father of sin. God wants us to choose Him freely. The repentance means turning away from sin toward God. Unfortunately, man turns to God after a major disaster in our lives. It doesn’t have to be that way. God is easily entreated. He loves us with His whole heart. And is wanting and willing to take back anyone that repents or turns back to Him. And all we have to do is to ask for forgiveness.
