All Have Sinned

Romans 3:23  

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

Satan, who successfully tempted Adam and Eve to sin, has also successfully tempted all of their descendants since that time. Sin is the opposite of God’s way of life. It causes us to miss the mark and fall far short of the incredible glory of God.

Only Jesus Christ never sinned, and only Jesus Christ has attained the glory of God. In His great love, He has made a way for us to be cleansed, forgiven and then raised in glory (Romans 8:18).
