This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
1 Timothy 1:15
The entirety of the gospel is found in one verse. In this post we will address the middle part of the verse:
“Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners”.
This refers to sinners of all sorts, male or female, bond or free, Jew or Gentile. It refers to sinners who are without strength and under the curse of fallen man and the world. It refers to sinners in all their pollution. (Like the pollution of the air hinders one’s breathing the pollution of sin hinders man’s spirit). These words refer to all sinners without exception.
What amazing grace!
