Romans 3:11-12 tells us that “no one understands; no one seeks for God. All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one.”” Man has been sinful since the beginning of time. When Adam and Eve chose their own desires over the Lord’s, they brought sin into the world. Every man and woman since Adam and Eve have sinned and continue to sin. The sin was so bad that God has had to bring destruction upon the world a few times in different ways.
These verses tell us that every person is in need of a Savior. Our sins separate us from the Lord. We need saving from these sins that plague us everyday. When we understand the depths of our sins and the fact that we sin everyday, we will understand the depths of His grace a little better. None of us does any good. The good that is in us is the good that comes from God. He is the one who gives us the good to show the world.
