Romans 3:21 But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, …22 …through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 For there is no difference; being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,

So much attention has been given to verse 23 that the purpose of the passage has been missed by some.

Because of Jesus there is finally righteousness, apart from the old laws, that is accessible to everyone no matter what sin they have committed.

We are no longer bound to perfecting ourselves through submission to the Ten Commandments and other Old Testament laws. Through faith in Jesus Christ we are justified – made righteous. And verse 23 simply states, not an excuse to sin, but that we have been excused from sin by His grace through His Son.
