A Barrier


Is the removal of the antagonism between God and man,
the first work of God from which man benefits eternally.
Until Jesus Christ reconciled man to God, God and man
were separated by an impassable Barrier. The Barrier
consisted of sin, the penalty of sin the problem of physical
birth, the problem of the character of God, the relative
righteousness of man, and man's position in Adam, in
contrast to the eternal life and absolute righteousness
of God.

So that being justified by His grace we might become heirs
according to the HOPE of eternal life.
Titus 3:7
