Romans 3:12 - Jesus; Our Greatest Need!

All have turned away from God; they have all gone wrong; no one
does what is right, not even one.
Rom 3:12 (TEV)

Paul uses these Old Testament references to show that humanity
in general, in its present sinful condition, is unacceptable before
God. Have you ever thought to yourself, Well, I'm not too bad. I'm a
pretty good person? Look at these verses and see if any of them apply
to you. Have you ever lied? Have you ever hurt someone's feelings
by your words or tone of voice? Are you bitter toward anyone? Do
you become angry with those who strongly disagree with you? In
thought, word, and deed, you, like everyone else in the world, stand
guilty before God. We must remember who we are in his sight--alienated
sinners. Don't deny that you are a sinner. Instead, allow your desperate
need to point you toward Christ. [Life Application SB]

In the KJV "There is no one righteous" means "no one is
innocent." Every person is valuable in God's eyes because God created us in
his image and he loves us. But no one is righteous (that is, no one
can earn right standing with God). Though valuable, we have fallen
into sin. But God, through Jesus his Son, has redeemed us and offers
to forgive us if we return to him in faith. [Life Application SB]

Lambs are wont to lag behind, prone to wander, and apt to grow
weary, but from all the danger of these infirmities the Shepherd
protects them with His arm of power.  He finds new-born souls, like young
lambs, ready to perish - He nourishes them till life becomes vigorous;
He finds weak minds ready to faint and die - He consoles them and
renews their strength.  All the little ones He gathers, for it is not
the will of our heavenly Father that one of them should perish.
What a quick eye He must have to see them all!  What a tender heart
to care for them all!  What a far-reaching and potent arm, to
gather them all!  In His lifetime on earth He was a great gatherer of
the weaker sort, and now that He dwells in heaven, His loving heart
yearns towards the meek and contrite, the timid and feeble, the fearful
and fainting here below.  How gently did He gather me to Himself, to
His truth, to His blood, to His love, to His church!  With what
effectual grace did He compel me to Himself!  Since my first conversion,
how frequently has He restored me from my wanderings, and once again
folded me within the circle of His everlasting arm!  The best of all
is, that He does it all Himself personally,  not delegating the task
of love, but condescending Himself to rescue and preserve His most
unworthy servant.  [Charles Spurgeon; Time with God devotional SB]
