We Fall Short

Simply put, none are righteous; all have sinned.

“as it is written,

“There is none righteous, not even one;
There is none who understands,
There is none who seeks for God;
All have turned aside, together they have become useless;
There is none who does good,
There is not even one.”
‘Their throat is an open grave,
With their tongues they keep deceiving,’
‘The poison of asps is under their lips’;
‘Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness’;
‘Their feet are swift to shed blood,
Destruction and misery are in their paths,
And the path of peace they have not known.’
‘There is no fear of God before their eyes.’

Now we know that whatever the Law says, it speaks to those who are under the Law, so that every mouth may be closed and all the world may become accountable to God; because by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight; for through the Law comes the knowledge of sin.

But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe; for there is no distinction; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:10-23 NASB).”

We fall short; He is long on mercy.

“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 6:23 NASB).”
