All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
and all are justified freely by his grace
through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.

Romans 3:23-24

The message of the gospel of Jesus Christ necessarily proclaims the universal sinfulness of humankind – no exceptions. It would be tragic if that’s where the message ended, but God declares the opportunity of redemption and forgiveness through faith in Jesus Christ, on the basis of his own grace towards us.
What an opportunity and what a gift!
