As I continue wit this theme of Romans I believe that we all need to understand our state as humans. Romans 3:10-11 says, 10 as it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one; 11 There is none that understandeth, There is none that seeketh after God; Romans 3:10-11 (ASV) and Romans 3:23 tell us 23 for all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God; Romans 3:23 (ASV)
We are all sinners and deserve death and hell. But, Romans 3:24-25 says; 24 being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 25 whom God set forth to be a propitiation, through faith, in his blood, to show his righteousness because of the passing over of the sins done aforetime, in the forbearance of God;Romans 3:24-25 (ASV) and Romans 5:8-10 says; 8 But God commendeth his own love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, shall we be saved from the wrath of God through him. 10 For if, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, shall we be saved by his life; Romans 5:8-10 (ASV)
We must remember that we are no better than any other human in our unsaved state and we must feel the urgency to share the Godo News that we know to be truw in spite of what the world may think.
Again, this a personal call to action to myself more so than to anyone else but we cannot shy away from the Good News and the desparate world's need to hear it.
