Hit the Bullseye!

Adam and Eve are being sent out of the garden ...In Adam All Die; Not So in Christ! Post by Quine
At 10 yards out you can could easily shoot an arrow into a bale of hay. But as you move back you need more and more time and practice to still hit it. 

But what if the target was across the Atlantic.  If you were standing on the East Coast of the US and the target is in France aiming higher won't help. No one could hit that target.

That’s the word the Bible uses for sin—to miss the target. It isn’t that we need more practice. It’s humanly impossible NOT to miss. As a descendant of Adam all sin and fall short (miss the target) of the glory of God. Through one man’s disobedience, the many were made sinners. 

Stop trying to pull the bow back further. Quit it! It is humanly impossible. Turn to Christ. Through the obedience of this One, the you will be declared righteous. By faith in Him you can hit the target--and your sin will not be in the eyes of the Lord. Now read Romans 5:19 The Meaning of Sin
