Psalm 14:3 says it the most bluntly, “All have turned aside, they have together become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one.” First, this shows the universality of sin…we are all sinners living in a evil and broken world. Our desires are for ourselves only, our focus on what we can get out of any situation, and our intentions usually dishonorable if we can get away with it. Like it says here, the world is held prisoner by sin…like a fish caught in a net or a bird in a snare, we’re all under the curse of sin and death. But God has made a way out…and His Name is Jesus Christ! For by placing our trust in Jesus we too can have that promise written about here…the promise of forgiveness for our sins and the hope of eternal life.
