Man is the only being on earth that God created in His own image (So God created mankind in His own image, in the image of God, He created them; male and female He created them. – Genesis 1:27). He also gave us the ability of free will. The disobedience that Adam and Eve displayed in the Garden of Eden had been inherited by generations to follow (for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. – Romans 3:23).
While the problem of sin carried on in the lives of all, sin had no place in God’s presence. But as everyone is guilty of doing wrong no one would be able to approach God.
But God desires more than this, He wants people to know Him, but more than that, He wants a relationship.
God’s ultimate plan was for His Son to free all people from sin, and to have a personal relationship with Him. Only through the Son can we seek salvation. (For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works so that no one can boast. – Ephesians 2:8-9) (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).
