Romans 3:9-20New King James Version (NKJV)
All Have Sinned
9 What then? Are we better than they? Not at all. For we have previously charged both Jews and Greeks that they are all under sin.
10 As it is written:
“There is none righteous, no, not one;
11 There is none who understands;
There is none who seeks after God.
12 They have all turned aside;
They have together become unprofitable;
There is none who does good, no, not one.”[a]
13 “Their throat is an open tomb;
With their tongues they have practiced deceit”; [b]
“The poison of asps is under their lips”; [c]
14 “Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness.”[d]
15 “Their feet are swift to shed blood;
16 Destruction and misery are in their ways;
17 And the way of peace they have not known.”[e]
18 “There is no fear of God before their eyes.”[f]
19 Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. 20 Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
If people were concerned about the consequences of sin we wouldn’t do some of the things we do.
People do not seek God anymore.
Our sin does affect others because we are suppose to set the examples.
Every generation falls further and further away from God.
Just because we get forgiveness doesn’t mean that gives us permission to sin.
We will all be held accountable for our sins one day.
Have a Blessed Sunday.
