“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Rom 3:23 (ESV, NIV, NKJV, etc.)
All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. But I’m not used to looking like I need His grace so much. I’m used to looking like I pretty much have it all together. But I don’t. None of us do.
“All the pleading which deliberately refuses to recognize the Cross is of no avail; it is battering at another door than the one which Jesus has opened. I don’t want to come that way, it is too humiliating to be received as a sinner.” (Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest, Dec 8).
Good morning, welcome to reality!
