23. For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. 24. Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. Romans 3:23-24 NLT
Most of us quote v.23, as to say no one's perfect. But the truth is, we don't need to make excuses for falling short. But read the next verse, verse 24 and accept what Christ has done and walk in Grace.
