We don't really understand what sin is.
There is no one righteous.
We not only sin but are full of sin.
Their throats are open graves.
We aren't capable of following the law.
All have turned away.
The grace of God came crashing down on me like an avalanche as I realized the depth of my sin. It still breaks me down. I hope it always does.
It was then that words like this took new form in my life:
And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him. Colossians 2:13-15
