I love the letters written by Paul, the Apostle. It was he, of course, who originally persecuted Christians to the full extent of his authority.
And in 1 Timothy 1: 15 he writes that Jesus came into the world to save sinners, and that he was the worst sinner of all!
Nothing he did, you might think, deserved God’s love.
But God lovingly transformed Paul into a man who would dedicate himself to spreading the gospel message in many lands.
We ourselves are unable to do enough good deeds to earn our right to enter the kingdom of heaven. Salvation, I have discovered, is only possible because of the grace of our Father God.
Jesus, who died on the cross, and who took the punishment for our sins, deserves all the credit for our redemption.
May you have a blessed Sunday, praising and worshipping our Heavenly Father, as you go to your church this holy Sabbath day.
With many peaceful blessings
