_GRACE : The Saving Power_
1 Timothy 1:15-16 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 immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life.
This message today is not for those who are perfect or have kept the law in it's entirety. Its for those who know and have understood that it's only God's grace and mercy that has gotten them this far.
The thing we are being pointed to by Paul is that the gospel is true and it should be accepted by all. So what is this truth that needs to be accepted by all? The truth of Jesus Christ came into this world to save me and you.
The gospel came to save all sorts of men's conditions irrespective of how big they are, no matter who you are, no matter what your background, etc.
The gospel is about the great news that Jesus came into the world for the lost. Matthew 18:11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.
Your being saved is for Christ to show others what His wonderful saving power can do through you.
Loving and merciful Father thank you for the gift of your Son Jesus Christ. Use me more to show the world what your grace can do.
