Application for Nov 17-18, 2012 :: Romans 3:23,24

===


Romans 3:23,24

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus

===

On Wednesday nights I work with Kindergarteners and First Graders and when I bring up Bible verses I like to point out that many passages of scripture have bad news in them.

Romans 3:23 is a verse often used in description of the gospel – and it’s used as the bad news.

And this is really, really bad news. It’s actually the worst news anyone could get: Even if you’re a pretty good person, you aren’t good enough. You fall short. For any unsaved person, your path is heading to Hell and away from God.

But happily, the good news follows in the very next verse: You don’t have to do anything except accept a gift – Grace, Justification, Redemption.

And all through Jesus.

This is really, really good news.
