Romans 3:10-12 Reads “As it is written, there is none righteous no, not one: there is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.”
As you read this passage, does it make your heart sink? Paul is referencing what David said in Ps. 14 and Ps. 53. As we are to look into the mirror of the word of God, do you see yourself as the unrighteous sinner that you are? I sure see myself in that reflection. That reflection is all based on the law. When you see your reflection in the mirror, do you fix the mirror, or do fix what you see that is wrong? Let’s fix what is wrong with the spiritual reflection we see here. We are all unrighteous.
God has a solution to the problem. It is the blood of Jesus Christ! Many of us have confessed our sins before the lord and have been forgiven and cleansed from our unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). We would call these people saved sinners. Many are still trying other ways to correct their reflection problem. We would call these unsaved sinners. See, we are all sinners; some are cleansed and prepared for eternity with God and others have not received the cleansing blood of Christ to correct the reflection of unrighteousness in their lives.
I’m thankful that God gave us the law so we can identify our sin, and I’m also thankful that he provided a way for us to be forgiven. Are you a saved sinner or an unsaved sinner? Please do not forget what manner of man you are (James 1:24).
