1 Timothy 1:12-17
World English Bible (WEB)
12 And I thank him who enabled me, Christ Jesus our Lord, because he counted me faithful, appointing me to service; 13 although I was before a blasphemer, a persecutor, and insolent. However, I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. 14 The grace of our Lord abounded exceedingly with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. 15 The saying is faithful and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. 16 However, for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first, Jesus Christ might display all his patience, for an example of those who were going to believe in him for eternal life. 17 Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
These are my thoughts please share yours.
12 Christ is why we are able to truly live. Once you have been in God's service it is hard to imagine how it would without being in service for the Lord.
13 Without Christ in our lives we are all able to do most evil things, with Him we have the gift for Him to stand between us and sin.
14 We are forgiven before we ask for all we do, we just got to ask to receive the forgiveness. Christ will keep forgiving us after we come to Him as well.
15 All are sinners and all need Christ because of theier sins. If God can change a man like Paul into what he became then what can God do with me?
16 Christ not only forgives us but gives us eternal life with Him. We are to show His mercy in our lives.
17 Without God none has wisdom and those that are truly wise are only wise because the Lord allows it. We are able to praise God forever right before Him.
