1 Timothy 1:15-17

“Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners– of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.”

Apostle Paul was shown mercy and patience so that he may be an example to us, those who believe him today. In light of Apostle Paul’s confession, let’s be encouraged despite our failings and flaws for we know that God’s love and grace covers even the worst of sinners. Let’s be grateful for the life we received through the Son, and persevere on the narrow path that leads to heaven!
