Sin is the greatest problem that people have. It is a problem that affects everyone, from every nation. It is a terrible problem, because sin ruins the relationship between people and God. Because of sin, people have lost their right to enter heaven. Sin is the reason why people suffer in this world. Sin controls the lives of everyone. It even controls the lives of the best people.
Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”
For all have sinned … this was the point which Paul had fully established in his letter to the Romans … and hence it is, that they are fallen short of glorifying God.
