Study Overview 

All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.—Romans 3:23

We are all sinners. We don’t deny it. But we don’t think much about it either. We don’t fret about sin like the ancients did. Today, our views of right and wrong differ radically from the Bible. As we study what the Bible says about sin and righteousness, we hope you will:

  • See why sin and righteousness matter so much to God
  • Discover the secret to true righteousness
  • Learn how to overcome sin and live beyond past failure

Most importantly, we will learn not only what righteousness looks like but also discover how we can be righteous as God defines it.

Your devotional author,
John Koessler.
