What I read today;
1Timothy 1; Luke 16; Isaiah 58; Psalm 26; 1 Samuel 9; Exodus 11
1 Timothy 1: 15 – “The saying is sure and worthy of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the foremost.” NRSV
Paul knew who he was and who he had been. He had been a murderer. Paul had been guilty of persecuting Christians. He had excommunicated people from the synagogue. He was feared.
But Jesus Christ had gotten ahold of him. And when Jesus gets ahold of someone, things will change dramatically. Paul’s life did a complete 180-degree turn. The world would never be the same.
Jesus wants to do the same thing for each one of us. We probably won’t have a moment like Paul did on the road to Damascus. But God will work on our hearts and minds individually if we will let him.
