Biblical Phrases — All Have Sinned!

Day 2204: Be a blessing today!!! Continuing our series on two to three word phrases in the Bible!

Scripture: For all have sinned, including me, and fallen short of the glory of God. Yet God freely justified me by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus.  Romans 3:23,24

Thoughts/questions: Most realize they make some mistakes or sin, but they still consider themselves good enough people that a loving God would reward with heaven. God agrees and disagrees. He agrees – all have sinned! But He disagrees in that we still have a basic problem that ALL of our self attained goodness cannot overcome.

We ALL also have inherent sin we can do NOTHING about. Our sin nature trumps our sinful lifestyle. We might become better people, but our sin issue can only be alleviated thru Jesus.

To attain heaven and live consistently and victoriously, it must be like the old hymn states, ‘You raise me up to more than I can be!’ And the grace and redemption found in Jesus Christ allows us to be more than we can be! We can’t; He can! We are without excuse; He pardons! We all have sinned; He forgives!

Thanks be to God for sending His Son, Jesus, to take care of what we CANNOT do by ourselves!

Suggested prayer: Dear Jesus, without You, I would be dead in my sin. How can I thank You enough . . .
