This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference. For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:22-23

Pastor and author John Piper defines the glory of God as “the beauty of His manifold perfections.” “Manifold” means various, diverse, many, or assorted. God’s glory is difficult to define, but glimpses can be seen. Consider the beauty of a fall forest, the splendor of valleys and mountains, the allure of wide open beaches and deserts, the magnificence of the sky and the heavenly bodies. They all display the awe of His manifold perfections.

God’s many perfections include His perfect holiness, perfect love, perfect justice, perfect compassion and perfect plan for our lives. When we sin, we fall short of these many perfections. Our sin is like a misplaced drop of paint right in the middle of a grand painting. How can we ever correct it? We can’t. That is the point. We have fallen short of the beauty of God’s many perfections.

Insight: There is good news though. Perfection comes to us in Christ, our true hope in this wretched - yet beautiful - world of sin. This perfection doesn't just automatically fall on us though. We have to make a conscious decision to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. We need to believe He died on the cross to pay for our sins. We have to admit to Him we have sinned and fall short of God's glory and ask Him to come in our hearts and forgive us our sins, turn away from them and follow Him.

Prayer: Dear Lord, Help me to realize there is nothing I can do on my own to get to heaven. My religion or my church attendance will not get me there. The fact that I am a relatively good person will not gain me entrance into your kingdom. Impress on my heart that the Lord Jesus did all the work at the cross at Calvary. Help me to believe on Him and His finished work as the payment for my sins. I ask You now to forgive me of my sins and come into my heart Lord Jesus and save me. I want to follow You now...not my own sinful desires. In Jesus' Name Amen

Thank You for this reminder Bob.

I've often pondered the magnitude of Christ's sacrifice. Is there any sin that his sacrifice cannot atone for when we truly seek forgiveness and believe? Take Hitler for example... responsible for the death of millions of innocent people. Could he, in theory be forgiven if he had repented? I believe the answer is YES.

You're welcome Wayne. The only unforgivable sin is blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. In simple terms, this is one's failure to receive...or the flat out rejection of Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. The need for a Savior is realized when one is convicted of their own sin and repents.

Great point you have made to drive home the magnitude of Christ's death on the cross and resurrection.
