While we are all far from perfect righteousness through our own efforts, God provided a way to perfect righteousness through faith in Christ’s sacrifice. Romans 3:22-24 says, 22 This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. While some sins seem bigger than others because they have bigger consequences, all sin requires forgiveness. Without it none of us deserves eternal life. Jesus Christ’s atonement for my sin affords me the ability to live eternally with Him. This is not through my effort, but 100% through His sacrifice. The only thing required of me is faith.
