1 Timothy 1:15 – I am the Chief of Sinners

Today’s Reading: Jeremiah 28:1‐29:32, 1 Timothy 1:1‐20, Psalm 86:1‐17, Proverbs 25:17

Context: Paul thanks God for appointing him to service in spite of himself. 

1 Timothy 1:15 “The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost.”

Observations:

  • The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance:
    • Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners
      • Of whom I am the foremost

Apply: Like Paul, I want to continue to remind myself of God’s saving work in my life.  There is no room for pride In the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

When was the last time you thought about the life that God redeemed you from?
