We were created to know God and the be known by Him. This is why we exist. But here's the reality, we are sinners separated from God and therefore, unable to live out the very reason for our existence. In our sin we have no hope for peace in this life and to be with God in the next.
That's the bad news, but here is the good news! God provided a way for us to be forgiven of sin and reconciled to Himself. Out of His love for us He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, for us.
