The Human Condition
We’ve probably heard the expression ‘the human condition.’ Some might define it in a variety of ways, but as believers in Christ, ‘the human condition’ is rather simple.
There’s an infinite gap between us and God — a gap that we alone cannot cross. But, we were made to be on the other side...God’s side.
Christ visits our side to bring us back home. It is only by His merits that we can cross the gap. But, that doesn’t mean that nothing is required of us. To cross with Christ, to unite ourselves with Him, we must be changed and purified. And, this purification process is something that we can’t do alone either.
It is God who purifies us, and even when it’s challenging and painful, it is our task to humbly and freely submit to His will.
It is then that we are fit to cross the gap. It is then that we can go to our eternal home.
