Romans 3:23-24–for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
Verse 23 is often used to remind us that absolutely everyone has done wrong. However, with that, it is important to remember the next verse as well. Everyone is justified freely through the grace and redemption found in Jesus Christ. Even though we are all sinners, there is hope for every single one of us. Redemption is free. We can be redeemed through Jesus Christ, and that is freely given to us who accept that redemption through His grace. No one is too bad for the work of Jesus Christ. Have we received it and have we shared it?
Father, You are amazing because even when every person fell short of Your glory, You made a way of redemption. I have accepted that free grace and I pray I will have the courage to share the message of that free grace with others so that they may experience redemption and forgiveness through You!
