Studying for my sermon this week, I ran across an interesting concept.  Rom. 3:23 says, "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."  I must have read and studied this passage a hundred times.  The "and" finally caught me this time.

Are the two concepts "have sinned" and "fall short" two separate issues or a consequential truth.  Did we all sin and then fall short, or did we sin and therefore fall short?  I don't think the end result is different, but the point could be.  I am sure that I fall short of God's glory even when I don't sin.  My perfection is even less than the glory of God let alone my sin.

God thank you for your grace.  I need you when I am bad and good.
