all

21 But now God’s righteousness has been revealed apart from the Law, which is confirmed by the Law and the Prophets.22 God’s righteousness comes through the faithfulness of Jesus Christ for all who have faith in him. There’s no distinction. 23 All have sinned and fall short of God’s glory,24 but all are treated as righteous freely by his grace because of a ransom that was paid by Christ Jesus. 25 Through his faithfulness, God displayed Jesus as the place of sacrifice where mercy is found by means of his blood. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness in passing over sins that happened before, 26 during the time of God’s patient tolerance. He also did this to demonstrate that he is righteous in the present time, and to treat the one who has faith in Jesus as righteous. 27 What happens to our bragging? It’s thrown out. With which law? With what we have accomplished under the Law? 28 No, not at all, but through the law of faith. We consider that a person is treated as righteous by faith, apart from what is accomplished under the Law. 29 Or is God the God of Jews only? Isn’t God the God of Gentiles also? Yes, God is also the God of Gentiles. 30 Since God is one, then the one who makes the circumcised righteous by faith will also make the one who isn’t circumcised righteous through faith. 31 Do we then cancel the Law through this faith? Absolutely not! Instead, we confirm the Law. (Romans 3:21-31, CEB)

We are all sinners and do not deserve God’s grace, but because of Jesus we can be made right. And Jesus sacrifice is for all past, present and future sins and for the sins of all people, not just those who had sinned when the sacrifice was made, or whose families were a part of the covenant.

All people are covered by the blood of Jesus.

This isn’t because we upheld the law, but because Jesus died for us all.

By the law we are made to stand in judgement for everything we have done wrong, and yet the sacrifice does not cancel the law, the law still shows us how we are wrong, but because of the sacrifice we no longer need worry about upholding the law we could never uphold.

Jesus died for all and those of us that know that must go and share the news in everything we do.

Love People, Love God.
