Romans 3:23

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

Encouraging Words...

From the Orthodox Study Bible: "The ultimate purpose of man's existence is to attain the glory of God. Even if a person were to keep the whole law, he would still fall short of that glory, because he would still be bound by death. The glory of God is both eternal righteousness and eternal life. Jesus Christ alone lived in completed righteousness, and He alone was resurrected from the dead. Therefore, He alone is the fullness of the glory of God, and we receive that glory in Him (see Jn 14:6)" The encouraging part here is that through the glorious work of JEsus Christ I too will be able to enter in the the glory of God.
