Romans 3: 10-25
verses 20-24: Therefore no one will be declared righteous in his sight by observing the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of sin. But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
I appreciate this explanation of the law. Knowing the difference between right and wrong is fundamental to my Christian life. But I can do ”right” and follow the rules all day, but until I profess my belief in Christ, doing “right” doesn’t cancel out the times I have done wrong. In Christ, I have forgiveness. I fall short of the glory of God. But Jesus died for me and for all of us, so that we could know we are forgiven. I forget to acknowledge my sins, sometimes, because many of them go ”un-noticed.“ But God knows all my sins. I ask for forgiveness today in the name of Jesus Christ, who died for me. Amazing grace! Amen
