Larry’s sermon for today:

 “Restoration of His Glory IV” (Matt. 16:13)

AT-ONE-MENT

 

The word atonement means, “to do what is necessary to end alienation and to restore relationship”.  Because of the entrance of sin into the world (Rom. 5:12) humanity became alienated in their relationship with God.  "But your wickedness has separated you from your God, And your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear” (Isa. 59:2).  The Hebrew word for “separated” pictures a wall or curtain that prevents the holiness of God from being approached by the unholiness of man.  God is seen “inside” the curtain, while disobedience mankind is “outside” the curtain.   When genuine “atonement” takes place the source of the division between God and man is forever settled.  The sacrificial death of Christ on the Cross is that which restores the fellowship with God that is lost because of sin that results in death (Rom. 6:23).  In this way, each of us becomes “at-one” with God, reconciliation because of what Christ accomplished on our behalf.
