What Separates Us From God?



Question: “What separates us from God?  It is not God’s will that we be separated from Him.  How can we renew our relationship with God?”



Bible Answers

It is not God’s will that we be separated from Him.  He wants a close relationship with us like He had in the garden with Adam. But our actions and attitudes can nevertheless separate us from God.  


The primary factors are:


A poor attitude or ignorance can also separate us from God.


When we analyze the above entries, we find that they all entail an act of disobedience.  Disobedience is classified as sin, and sin separates us from God.  We can be close to God only when we have repented of our sins.  There is no in-between.  We are either carrying sin or we have confessed our sin. When we are free of sin, then we can draw near to God.


your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden his face from you so that he does not hear.  For your hands are defiled with blood and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies; your tongue mutters wickedness (Isaiah 59:2-3).


We need to confess our sins and return to a full relationship with our heavenly Father.
