What is the Standard of God's Glory
The meaning of this verse is amazingly profound and a truth beyond that of mere men; "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God," ~Rom.3.23.NASB. I have spent much time contemplating Romans chapter 3 and especially Romans 3:21-26, which is at the heart of the gospel. I had so focused in on Romans 3:25 and especially propitiation that I missed something, the heart of this passage is not propitiation, it is the Glory of God. What is the glory of God? What is the standard of God's glory? Think about these words, "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God". Jesus Christ is the glory of God, Jesus Christ is the standard of God's glory. Therefore when the scripture says, "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God", what it is saying is this. YOU HAVE MISSED THE MARK OF GOD'S GLORY, WHICH IS TO LIVE A LIFE JUST LIKE THAT OF GOD'S SON, JESUS CHRIST. Jesus Christ the only Man to live, who never sinned, gave up His life as a ransom for all who repent and receive Him as Lord and savior by faith, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. Repent and receive Jesus Christ as both Lord and Savior by faith.
