Today’s scripture: 1 Timothy 1:15-16
Yesterday, we talked about how we can find forgiveness and mercy and grace in a
relationship with our heavenly Father.
Today, Paul tells us how: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.”
He came to this world for one reason only: to offer redemption to mankind and a
way back into fellowship with God.
He came to grant mercy and grace. He came so that we might joyfully anticipate
eternity with Him
Jesus can redeem the heart of the lowest of the low. There is nothing you have
done that cannot be wiped away by our Savior’s blood. You can be cleansed of
every sin you ever committed.
It just takes admitting you’re a sinner and that you need a Savior. It just
takes belief in Jesus as that Savior and acceptance of His sacrifice. And then
it takes surrender to God the Father’s will.
You cannot save yourself. You cannot hope that the good you do somehow
outweighs the bad. You can’t give more money or more time or more effort to
Only one way to salvation and eternal life with God—Father, Son, and Spirit—is
available to you. Believe in Jesus. Accept the gift of His payment for your
sin. Give your life completely over to Him
And accept His amazing grace and abundant mercy.
