Here are the words that jumped out at me in today’s scripture reading:
15Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst. 16But 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. 17Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen. (1 Timothy 1:15-17)
That’s how I feel about my life. I am the worst sinner I know and my hope as a pastor is that by people seeing a difference in my life – they might want Christ in their lives too. Lord, may you receive all the glory for my life and may my life bring you honor by pointing people to you.
