We’ve got another summer scripture for you today. Yesterday, we looked at how Adam’s sin brought the curse and death on the world. That’s the bad news.
And there’s even more bad news. Because of Adam’s sin, death spread to each of Adam’s descendants. That means that you and I are sinners.
When Adam sinned, sin entered the world. Adam’s sin brought death, so death spread to everyone, for everyone sinned. – Romans 5:12 (NLT)
Realizing that you’re a sinner is an important step in your relationship with God. Not that you spend all day beating yourself up for the ways you fall short, that’s not the point at all. Instead, the point is coming to the realization that you need help to obtain God’s righteousness.
Today’s Truth: You Need Help to Obtain God’s Righteousness
That means that being a good person isn’t enough. As hard as you try to be good, it’s never enough. You need another solution. A better way. And that’s what God himself provided. God in His love cared so much about you, His creation that He made a solution for your sin. What you couldn’t do in your own strength, you didn’t need to do. God Himself was coming to make a way for you to be righteous. Keep on with us, we’ll learn more about that in the upcoming days.
