Read Romans 3

We have all at some point felt guilty or bad for falling short of God’s plan for us. We all have a conscience and eventually we have to deal with the decisions we make. The reality is we are all guilty before God because we have all broken His law.

There is nothing we can do that will make up for the sins we commit aside from asking for His forgiveness and accepting His free gift. We are all accountable to God for our sins and Jesus Christ paid the ultimate price in our place for those sins.

Our hope is found only in Jesus Christ and the fact that He loved us so much that He died for our sins so that we may be reconciled to God. Romans 3:21-24 sums it up well:

“But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.”
