To Save Sinners: Matters of the Heart, the Gospel, and God

Passage:1 Timothy 1:12-17

Preacher: Ben Phillips

Category: Mission & Vision

In 1 Timothy 1:12-17, the great Apostle opens up to his protege and successor, Timothy, about his own conversion. In doing so he brings the great doctrinal truths of the Christian faith into a very real life and personal place. Paul essentially came face to face with who he was apart from Christ, which was nothing, and who he became in Christ. Paul writes the immortal words, "This is a true saying and worthy of all to be received, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners." This succinct and beautiful statement brings us to the heart of the Gospel, the mission of God, and why it is so important to hear over and over and over again!
