HOW DO WE FALL SHORT OF HIS GLORY?

Bible Text: "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23

How quickly do we found ourselves sinning after asked for forgiveness?

In a way Jesus told us in John 14:15 “If ye love me, keep my commandments”.  Confession of sin is good, maintaining His grace is what we need; Justification solves the problem of man’s guilt before a righteous Judge.

Redemption solves the problem of man’s slavery to sin, the world, and the devil. Propitiation solves the problem of offending God our Creator.

How do we fall short of the glory of God? Or “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound?” Salvation is possible because of the redemption found in Jesus. God cannot give us His righteousness apart from Jesus Christ. The idea of redemption means that Jesus bought us, therefore we belong to Him.

Paul expressed this thought in another letter: For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s. (1 Corinthians 6:20).

After all, if God loves sinners, then why worry about sin? If God gives grace to sinners, then why not sin more and receive more grace? Some people think that their job is to sin and God’s job is to forgive, so they will do their job and God will do His job!
