Jesus’ One Mission: Save Sinners


Jesus saves sinners

This saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance,

“Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.” (1 Timothy 1:15)

The apostle Paul had been “a blasphemer, persecutor and an insolent opponent” of God. However, the Lord’s grace overflowed for him and he found mercy and forgiveness from his sins. Therefore, we learn, the key to salvation is the character of God, not the performance of man. Humanity’s only hope is in the merciful and gracious character of God expressed through Christ Jesus. Just as the Lord saved Paul, He will save you. So, take comfort today in these words, “Christ Jesus came into the world to save… you.”

For further reading: Luke 15:1-32; Acts 8:1-3; 9:1-16; 1 Timothy 1:12-17
