For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
We must acknowledge that there is a defect in human nature, a built-in waywardness that comes from man’s rebellion against God. “There is none righteous, no, not one” (Romans 3:10).
Man’s nature and destiny are revealed in the Scriptures and while multitudes will deny its truth, the truth does not change. In taking our human nature upon Himself, Jesus showed us what we might become and what God meant us to be. He will give us the power and might to live up to His standard if we will repent of our sin and submit ourselves to Him. There is no greater joy than knowing that our sins are forgiven and that the Savior of the world wants us to spend eternity with Him.
