Our Sin And God’s Salvation

“Since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, they are justified by His grace as a gift, through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus” (Romans 3:23-24).

Here, we read about our sin and God’s salvation. Once we have received God’s salvation, we must not forget about our sin. We have been saved by God’s grace – but we are always sinners. Our sin has been forgiven – but our sin is still there, trying to get the upper hand, trying to keep us from “growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18). How are we to grow in Christ? We rejoice in His gift of the forgiveness of our sins – but will we grow in Christ by forgetting that we are sinners? When we come to the Cross of Christ, two things are revealed to us – our sin and God’s salvation. The revelation of our sin does not end when we receive God’s gift of forgiveness. In love, the Lord keeps on showing us how far we have fallen short of His perfect holiness. He shows us our sin so that we might appreciate His salvation and learn to walk with Him on His “Highway of Holiness” (Isaiah 35:8).
