The Great Wall

March 28, 2010

“Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?” – Romans 8:35

In January of 2000, I had the privilege of seeing the Great Wall of China. It was magnificent. The construction of it began over four hundred years before Christ and was completed in the 1600’s. It’s built over some of the toughest terrain imaginable. You could stretch it from Atlanta to London and still have wall left over. All that effort to stay separated from their enemies.

But as big as the Great Wall is, it’s not as big a wall as the wall of sin that separates man from God. I know sin is not a politically correct term these days, but it’s what separates us from God. No man can overcome this barrier on his own. Yet God offers us a way through Jesus, His sacrificial death, and our faith in Him. He removes the barrier.

Do you feel a barrier or separation between you and God? Look, in faith, at what God’s Word says about Jesus. He’ll remove the wall between you and God.
