When Adam and Eve sinned, that sent the rest of creation into a terrible downfall. Their sin has affected us to this day. We are born sinners. We have all sinned and fallen short of God’s glory (Romans 3:23). But there is HOPE! God _________________ us from our sin. He took us from a dark place and put us in the light. He rescued us from the control of our sin and brought us into freedom. (Colossians 1:13-14, Romans 8:18). He did this because He wants a relationship with us, but our sin separates us from Him.
