None is righteous, no, not one.

—Romans 3:10

God is holy and his standard is holy. He is righteous and his standards are righteous. And the Bible clearly tells us that every one of us was born with the infectious disease called sin.

And what is sin? Sin is independence from God. It causes each of us to live our lives our way, to fulfill our will rather than the will of God. And while most people realize that they’ve sinned against God, they may not realize the consequences of sin.  

Romans 6: 23 says, “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in  Christ Jesus our Lord.”

We were born and bred in sin. We do what comes naturally to us and, as a result, we experience separation from God. We may be existing… living and breathing… but without Jesus Christ, we don’t have life!

As 1 John 5:12, says, “Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.” 

Do you have life today? If not, ask Jesus to forgive you of your sins and ask him to live in your heart that you may have life… real life… starting today!

YOU MAY BE EXISTING… LIVING AND BREATHING… BUT WITHOUT
JESUS CHRIST, YOU DON’T HAVE LIFE!
