All Have Sinned

In Rom 3:21-23, Is one of the most pointed scriptures in the Bible, Paul now begins his expose or essay on righteousness and faith.  There is a righteousness that comes through faith.  It does not come through the law.  This was something both the law and the prophets would testify of.  The foundation of the Jewish faith testified of righteousness apart from the law.  This righteousness comes from God.  It comes through faith in Jesus Christ to those who believe and put their trust in His finished work on the cross.  There is no difference between Jew and Gentile.  Sin is universal.  All have sinned.  All have fallen short of the glory of God.  The character and essence of God has been missed by all.  What we have to do today is come to God through Jesus Christ alone.  Today tell those in your world that they have missed it but that they can come to God through Christ.  Share this good news and give hope to all you meet.  Be His ambassador of truth and hope.  In your own life, keep a close watch on your soul and stay right with God.
