One of the main problems today is that many don’t see themselves as sinners and therefore don’t need to be saved.
As Selwyn states, ‘The essence of sin is the failure to glorify God, and anyone who does not glorify God is guilty of the worst kind of sin.’
Essentially, when we fail to put God first, we fill the space with ourselves – we make decisions based on what we want – that is, we act as our own god and attempt to mould all our relationships to serve our own purposes.
Jesus’ desire is to love us within a relationship – sin breaks the relationship – it’s up to us to mend it.
