"The Worst ofAll Sinners!"

“The Worst of All Sinners!”

What I say is true, and you should fully accept it: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the worst. But I was given mercy so that in me, the worst of all sinners, Christ Jesus could show that He has patience without limit. His patience with me made me an example for those who would believe in Him and have life forever. 1Timothy 1:15, 16

These verses of Scripture are part of the Apostle Paul’s amazing conversion. Paul was an enemy of the Lord Jesus Christ, until his unexpected encounter on the road to Damascus, where his plans were to round up as many Christians as he could and bring them back to Jerusalem to meet their demise. But Paul met the Master, Jesus, and was instantly blinded and after a short time was made to see, both physically and spiritually.

It was Paul’s desire to kill as many of Christ’s followers as possible. He was NOT a FAN of Jesus Christ. Therefore he considered himself to be the WORST of ALL SINNERS. But when he was confronted by Christ, Himself, Paul was GLORIOUSLY CONVERTED from an UNBELIEVER to a BELIEVER. And NOT ONLY a BELIEVER, but a SERVANT, an EVANGELIST, and a MISSIONARY for the Lord Jesus Christ, risking his life, time and time again because of the very FAITH that he was ONCE so opposed to.

Paul goes on to say that the MERCY he received from God was a result of the fact that; Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners---this was His mission. And due to the limitless patience of Christ Jesus, Paul not only became a BELIEVER, but he was made an EXAMPLE for those seeking to become a BELIEVER.

Paul knew he was a sinner and not just a sinner, but the WORST of ALL SINNERS. Is that the way you are thinking, that you are the WORST of ALL SINNERS, because of ALL the really BAD things that you have thought, said or done? Well, like the Apostle Paul, you can be FORGIVEN of your SIN-FILLED life and have the HOPE of Heaven. There is no sin that CANNOT be FORGIVEN, other than REJECTING Jesus Christ as your SAVIOR and LORD. The Bible says if we will CONFESS our sins to Him, He is FAITHFUL and JUST to FORGIVE us of our sins. He is WAITING for you to come to Him for the SALVATION of your soul. If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to Him, then you are REJECTING HIM and as patient as He is, there will come a time when He will quit dealing with you, then you will be HOPELESSLY, ETERNALLY LOST. You can avoid that by: Coming to Him, with a TRULY REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and become a TRUE BELIEVER and an EXAMPLE to those NEEDING a SAVIOR. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!

Mood: hopeful
