It’s easy to read Romans 3:23 and put a negative spin on it. Have you read it lately. You know what it says right?

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,”

It’s easy to look at that verse and realize all of human kind is guilty and even feel depressed about it. It’s easy to read it over and over again and contemplate how all of mankind is hopeless and that sin creeps into everyone’s heart, mind and actions. The reality is that there comes a point in everyone’s life that we realize that there is a wrong and there is a right. That is the reality of sin. That reality can be depressing and even a little scary.

It’s also important to read this verse and realize that all of human kind is guilty of sin and be encouraged about it. Now before you get upset thinking that I am saying that its encouraging that all have sinned please know that is not what I am saying. I am saying very clearly that since all have sinned and all will sin and we all realize what is right and wrong then its actually encouraging to me to know that we are in this together. We’ve all been there!

Since we have all been there and we all will be there the answer to our problem is the same. JESUS!!!. Yes, we have sin and we fall short over and over and over again. And the answer remains the same.


We’ve all been there!
