Romans 3:23–for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
Why do we need Jesus? Because on our own we cannot hope to measure up to God’s standard of perfection. We have all fallen short and missed the mark of perfection God requires. Thankfully, God has made a way for us to be made right with Him through Jesus Christ.
Lord, I praise You that You are Holy and perfect. Thank You for making a way for me, since I am not. Today, I will remember Your sacrifice for me and the whole world, so we can be made right with You.
