The Bible instructs us to “no longer walk as [unbelievers] walk, in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God” (Ephesians 4:17-18). How can we become alienated from the life of God?

We become separated from the Lord when we become separated from the Word, because Jesus is the Word. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word became[...] read more
