Humanity’s relationship with God was broken when Adam and Eve sinned by disobeying God. God promised a Redeemer who would defeat Satan and reconcile God and man. The New Testament shows us that Jesus is the promised Redeemer. Through his death on the cross, Jesus atoned for our sin and restored the possibility of a relationship with God. Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6).
Jesus is the answer—the only answer—to our broken relationship with God. It is Jesus who makes it possible for our sins to be forgiven and for us to be children of God. Jesus mends our relationship with God so that we can fellowship with Him during our lifetimes and eventually live with Him for eternity.
