All men are wrestlers in a sense, as they must wrestle with the problem of sin
in their lives for, All have sinned and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). And though God
loves man, He must punish man's sins and He has declared that the soul that sinneth shall surely die and that the
wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23). (This means eternal seperation from God in Hell). He is a Holy God and
has declared that no sinner can come into his Holy presence now or forever without having his sin problem resolved.
For the prophet has stated your sin has seperated between you and your God and your sins have hid his face from you.
God is Holy, and righteous, and just. Therefore, because of His very nature,
He must punish sin. But praise the Lord, God is also a loving and merciful God. His love extended toward you and
me provided a substitute to pay for our sins once and for all. His son...Jesus Christ was that sin substitute...He wrestled
the sin match for us and won!
For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that
he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit.-1 Peter 3:18
