We have to understand who we are and what we have done.

  • Even though we were created in God’s image, we are not perfect
    like Him.
  • Romans 3:23 – For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
  • This means that everyone in the world has sinned (which means “to miss the mark”). Everyone has chosen to do things that go against God or not do things He wants us to do.
  • That’s what this verse means when it says we “fall short.” As good as we try to be, we can never be perfect like God. We will always fall short of His perfect standard.
