John 1 tells us that Jesus was with the Father from the beginning of time. Out of His love and majesty, He created us for one purpose: that we might worship Him and bring Him glory. However, we rejected His purpose for our lives and decided to worship other things, which is called sin. Our treason is fatal, as described in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death.” Thus, we became separated from God. Having rejected Him, we have made ourselves into gods and have replaced his law and standards with our own.
