I watched a small boy and his mother. The boy disobeyed his mother. So she sent him to his room to be alone and think about what he had done. The boy was sad. He did not want to be separated from his mother. He wanted to be close to his mother again and feels her arms around him.
It is the same with our relationship with God. When we sin and disobey God, we are separated from Him. But in our heart, we want to be right with Him again. We want to feel close to Him. God sent Jesus to earth so that we can be right with Him.
Paul talked about being right with God in his letter to Christians in the city of Philippi. He explained that Jesus was more important than anything else in the world. Then Paul wrote in Philippians 3:9 about being right with God. “I want to belong to him. In Christ, I am right with God, but being right with God does not come from following the law. It comes from God through faith. God uses my faith in Christ to make me right with him.”
God loves you and wants you to have a right relationship with Him. That relationship begins by having faith in His Son, Jesus. Your faith will lead you to learn more about obeying God and living for Him every day.
