Perfect in it’s Equality

Absolute Equality

Sheep (and Dustin)

Let’s talk about a verse that can solve all arguments… one that levels the playing field. A truth that ends all arguments.

Romans 3:23, a verse like this has NO exclusions and IS all inclusive. Maybe not “all inclusive” like the resort in the Dominican Republic that Joy and I went to on our honey moon 18 years ago. But, none the less includes ALL!

It (the verse) goes like this… “For all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God”

Those three letters are quite powerful. Not only can it clean your laundry but it leaves no one out and all are equal. Jesus, being both 100% God and 100% man was, is, and forever will be perfect and sinless. But for Adam and every descendant born, they have ALL sinned and fell short.

There is good news though, God has included ALL in 2 Peter 3:9 also. “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” That is right, none have been excluded here either! All are equal in this regard as well. He desires for ALL to be saved. No one, not even one, is left out. Think about that!!!

Love Y’all
