Weekly Truth

1 Timothy 1:15

Scripture is God-breathed and true. When we memorize it, we carry the good news of the gospel of Jesus with us wherever we go.

This week we will memorize the key verse for 1 Timothy.

This saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners”—and I am the worst of them. —1 Timothy 1:15

    Christ gave His life for me. If He was willing to die for me in order to ay for my sins, then I should seek to live for Him daily.

    This week God has worked beautifully in my heart to show me my need for him. Sometimes I feel like, even though it’s not a conscious decision, I live like I don’t need God. Whenever I do things without relying on God, whenever I try to do things by myself, or absent-mindedly forget to include him, it’s really me saying that I can do it without him. Even though its not conscious, my hidden pride leads me to believe I’m good enough, that I know best, and that it’s about me. But God has opened my eyes to the beautiful simplicity of every Christians testimony, that we were adopted into this new eternal family when we realized our sinfulness and said “I need Jesus.”

    I am no less redeemed than another person with a more “exciting” testimony. Praise God for both! We were both lost in our sin and separated from God, and we both laid down our lives and confessed our need for a savior.

    I am also no better than someone with a more “exciting” testimony. My rallying cry this week has come from 1 Timothy 1:15, that of the sinners Jesus came to save, I am the worst. I’m not good enough. And it’s not about me. I need Jesus.

    Thank you, Lord, for Jesus. That you sent him to save, repair, and redeem someone as bad as me. Help me to understand what this means, and to love others like I have been freely given the gift of your grace and new life.
