Romans 3:23: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.
Meditation: I recently had a friend ask me what “sin” was. Good question! What is sin? This particular word pictures an archer aiming for the bulls eye of a target As he draws the string back and lets go, the arrow flies but falls desperately short of the target. God has a “target” so to speak, a standard if you will, that we are to hit. That standard is absolute perfection. I’m sure we all will agree that no one is perfect and we do fall short of that standard, however, without attaining to that standard we will never be able to enter heaven apart from God lowering the standard or providing a mean’s by which we attain it vicariously through someone who can hit the mark. That someone is Jesus Christ.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, my prayer is for those who may be reading this. If there is just one person who hasn’t received Jesus as their Savior, may they trust Him today for salvation. Amen.
