As it is written: “There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands, no one who seeks God. All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one.” Romans 3:10-12
No one righteous.
No one who understands.
No one who seeks God.
No one who does good.
Not even one.
What is the True Human Condition?
So dead that only God can make us alive-Ephesians 2:1
So blind that only God could give us sight-2 Corinthians 4:4
So sinful that only God could forgive us-Psalm 51:5
So bad only God can make us good-Jeremiah 17:9
So lost that only God could save us-Luke 19:10
So helpless that only God could change us-Jeremiah 13:23
sinful… lost… helpless… hopeless… doomed… dead
Nothing we could do to save ourselves!
“Rock of Ages”

Nothing in my hand I bring
Simply to Thy Cross I cling,
Foul I to the fountain fly
Wash me, Savior, or I die.
“When evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman, ‘Call the workers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last ones hired and going on to the first.’ The workers who were hired about five in the afternoon came and each received a denarius. So when those came who were hired first, they expected to receive more. But each one of them also received a denarius.” Matthew 20:8-10
“When they received it, they began to grumble against the landowner. ‘These who were hired last worked only one hour,’ they said, ‘and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden of the work and the heat of the day.’” Matthew 20:11-12
“He answered one of them, ‘I am not being unfair to you, friend. Didn’t you agree to work for a denarius? Take your pay and go. I want to give the one who was hired last the same as I gave you. Don’t I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Or are you envious because I am generous?’” Matthew 20:13-15
“Or are you envious because I am generous?”
“Now to him who does not work, but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness.” Romans 4:5
We know, because of Scripture Alone
That our salvation is in Christ Alone
By Grace Alone
Through Faith Alone
