As an athlete with God, we all have a weakness. That weakness is sin and no matter what sin we commit, it ultimatley separates us from God, our heavenly coach.

What is sin?

  Sin means missing the mark, falling short of God's standard. It is not only doing wrong and failing to do what God wants (lying, gossip, losing our temper, lustful thoughts, etc.), but it is also an attitude of ignoring or rejecting God which is a result of our sinful nature.
    "Indeed, I was guilty when I was born..."
Psalm 51:5
   

Who has sinned?

  " For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
Romans 3:23

What's the result of sin?

  Separation from God.
    "But your iniquities have built barriers between you and your God..."
Isaiah 59:2
  Death.
    "For the wages of sin is death"
Romans 6:23
  Judgment.
    "...just as it is appointed for people to die once—and after this, judgment"
Hebrews 9:27

This illustration shows that God is holy and we are sinful and separated from Him. Man continually tries to reach God through his own efforts (being good, religious activities, philosophy, etc.) but, while these can be good things, they all fall short of God's standard.

"All of us have become like something unclean, and all our righteous acts are like a polluted garment"
Isaiah 64:6

There is only one way to bridge this gap between God and man...
