Weekly Truth

from the Romans reading plan

Romans 3:23

BY She Reads Truth

Memorizing Scripture is one of the best ways to carry God-breathed truth, instruction, and reproof wherever we go.

As we read through Romans together, we will memorize the steps in the Romans Road to salvation, a concise explanation of the gospel using verses from this epistle. The first step acknowledges the problem: our own sin.

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
—Romans 3:23

Write this passage down and post it on your mirror or at your desk, in your car or on the fridge—anywhere you’ll see it often. Save the image below as your phone’s lock screen so you can read these words of truth throughout the day.

We want to be a community that is intentional about Scripture memorization. Will you join us?

    What a blessing that perfection is not the goal! Daily commitment to loving, learning, listening and correcting our path as we are led by God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit is the goal.

    “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (3:23). ALL have sinned. Not some. All. None of this can stand faultless before God in our own “goodness”. And yet, praise God, He has made a way of redemption.

    God’s perfect, I can’t live up to his standard. Not ever! Even on a ‘good’ day, I don’t and can’t live up to his standard!

    I’ve been walking with Jesus for many years and for some reason didn’t pay attention to the second half of the verse (Romans 3:23) … fall short of the glory of God. My thoughts turn toward THAT this morning and my desire is to do the opposite of what Paul writes about in the first part of Romans 3. Falling short, to me, means I am not reaching the goal. When Paul tells us in verses 9-19 about what it looks like to be unrighteousness, that is, not understanding, not seeking, turning aside, worthless, doing no good, having a throat that is an open grave, a tongue of deception, venomous lips, swift to shed blood, being on a road to ruin, no peace and no fear of God… falling short. I realize afresh this morning how my need – the absolute necessity – of Jesus is so very very great. I praise Jesus for His AMAZING redemption. I’m in awe of His amazing grace.
