This is why we all need to be saved. We’ve fallen short of God’s glory. We need to hear this today because we think of sin as an offense against man, not God. Evil is when man is hurt, not when God is dishonored. Evil is when I am abused, not when God is dishonored. Evil is when I am threatened, not when God is dishonored. We need to hear the Apostle Paul’s unrelenting witness in Romans to the God-centered understanding of sin and righteousness. Sin is an offense against God. As believers, when we sin, we not only defile ourselves and others, but we also dishonor God.
