For All have Sinned: Standing on Level Ground

Submitted by No Comment | 1,067 views

Thunderously, inarguably, the Sermon on the Mount proves that before God we all stand on level ground: murderers and temper-throwers, adulterers and lusters, thieves and coveters. We are all desperate, and that is in fact the only state appropriate to a human being who wants to know God. Having fallen from the absolute Ideal, we have nowhere to land but in the safety net of absolute grace.Philip Yancey, The Jesus I Never Knew

For all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God Romans 3 verse 23

“For all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God” – Romans 3:23

Brian Doerksen – The River – English & German Subtitles



The Lord looks down from heaven upon the children of men,
To see if there are any who understand, who seek God.
They have all turned aside,
They have together become corrupt;
There is none who does good,
No, not one.

Psalm 14:2-3
New King James Version (NKJV)

We are in a hopeless state. We all need to be forgiven. We need a Savior.

There is only one way: Jesus Christ – He is the way, the truth, and the life.

Walk in the light

“We are not sinners because we sin; we sin because we are sinners.” The heart or mind of a person is already polluted with something that is opposed to the authority of God or the idea of surrender – something that sets itself up against the life of purity and discipline. This what the Apostle Paul meant when he said, “Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.” (Romans 8:5)

R.C. Sproul

If we confess our sins He is faithful to forgive

The Way of Escape – God Has Provided A Way

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

Ephesians 1:7 “In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;”

John 5:24 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
