The Scriptures teach that we have all sinned and fallen short of God’s glorious plan for our lives (Romans 3:23). Because of sin, there was a disruption of the wonderful primary purpose God had for people. The Bible says in 1 John 4:16 that God is love. Love is not an isolated element – it must find a connection and it must have expression. God made humanity so He could have someone with whom to share His love. He loved the world so dearly, that when it turned away from Him, He sent His only Son to win it back.
