A while back, well known columnist Sydney J Harris wrote, “When you calculate how short is the span of life on this planet…and how we spend this span in fighting, competing, killing and hating, it seems a gruesome caricature of what civilization was intended to be.” Mr. Harris’ words sound like a lament for a fallen race don’t they. When God created us, He made man in His image, but man rebelled and we became a fallen race, spiritually dead. Paul described mankind’s condition as follows- “Therefore just as through one man (Adam)sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men…” But thankfully, one glad day Jesus left heaven and came to earth. There He allowed Himself to be nailed to a Roman cross, taking the sins of the world as our Substitute. He offers forgiveness and eternal life to all who receive it. I did. Will you?
