Romans 3:23

"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." NIV

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." KJV

Since we are all born into sin, we cannot be held accountable for being sinners. We can and will be accountable for knowing that Jesus Christ came to deliver us from our sinful state and we refused to accept it. That is when God holds us responsible. His light has come to this world to show the way to eternal life, but some choose to stay in the darkness. They like it better there.

Heavenly Father, oh how we thank You for sending Jesus Christ to deliver us from sin. May the Holy Spirit dwell so richly in our lives that those who have chosen to remain in darkness will see that choosing Jesus Christ is the far better way. Make us witnesses of Your love and grace. We pray in Jesus' name, Amen.

Those who have heard the Gospel and understood it, but rejected God's freely given gift of salvation through His grace by faith, will be without excuse. Believers also will have no excuse to justify before Christ why we failed to share the Gospel with those in our circles who are unsaved. May we boldly spread the Good News, realizing that God has commanded it, and that it is the Holy Spirit Who will then move in the hearts of sinners to bring them to Himself. Love in Christ, Laurie

I've seen that same image with a cross lying across the gap, forming the bridge. :)

Found you @ Spiritual Sundays (I'm #60!)

Amen, Dr. Bobbi. I think if more Christians let their light shine more people in darkness would desire to come to the light.
