the fullness of love is gone?

You have a good job, but your girlfriend quarrels. Or: you have the best spouse in universe, but your child gets seriously ill. There are always some difficulties. The perfect life is not available.

Shouldn’t life be better? 

A world without illness, strife, loneliness,  … We had it! Someday God and man were close friends: they knew each other pretty good. They had fantastic times with each other until man mistrusted God (Genesis 2 & 3).

»The fullness of love is gone«

Since then the intimate connection with God is broken. We can’t fix it. We can’t come close because we aren’t holy. So we can’t stand his holiness. Everyone is born into this dilemma: there is a longing for perfect love, but separated from God (the perfect love in person) everybody is separated from the fullness of love. 

The longing for paradise still remains.

And we are made for paradise. There is only one way back into the closeness to our creator. Find out about that in the Gospel of John, Chapter 3
