Sin or relationship?

As Christians, Jesus has cleansed us from our sin, not because of His hatred for sin, but because HeRelationship wants us to have relationship with Him, here and now.  Sin just got in the way.  So He so very kindly removed it from us, at His own very painful expense on the Cross.

He wants us, and for us to be as Adam and Eve were originally with Him, walking with Him in the cool of the day, before sin came into the picture.  To be best friends.  BFF.

So the focus is not so much about the sin, (and neither should ours be) but on the fact that He has dealt with our sin once and for all so we can have relationship with Him.  What a wonderful God.  Blows my mind actually.

For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God……….   1 Peter 3:18  NKJV  (emphasis mine)
