A prime example // 04-05-20

“’Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners’—and I am the worst of them all. But God had mercy on me so that Christ Jesus could use me as a prime example of his great patience with even the worst sinners. Then others will realise that they, too, can believe in him and receive eternal life.” 1 Timothy‬ ‭1:15-16‬ ‭NLT‬‬

A big thank you to all those who messaged me over the weekend. It certainly sounds like God is making His presence felt and is stirring our hearts in many ways during this difficult time we are in. An interesting theme I got was that so many of us feel like we’re not all that we could be as Christians? That is certainly the place I often find myself and how I’m feeling challenged right now, but I’m reminded that there is no such thing as a ‘perfect Christian.’ Like St Paul said, we are all just sinners saved by grace! There are no superstars except Jesus, and because of His great mercy towards us we can give hope to others like us that He can save them too! So take heart, I am so encouraged that God hasn’t finished with me yet, how about you? Lord, help me to grow in faith, and as I lean into You, change me to become more like Jesus and use me for Your glory. Amen 🙏🏼
