Scripture to Read: 1 Timothy 1:15
Today we focus on an incredible reminder and promise that we need to walk in daily. We also need to share this with everyone we come across daily as well. God, in His abundant mercy and grace, tells us that what He is about to share is trustworthy. There is not much in this world today that is trustworthy and that is sad. Years ago, it used to be the norm that a person’s word was their bond. It used to be that you could count on people following through on whatever they told you. People used to do their work with a sense of dignity and most people cared about doing the best job possible because their reputation was at stake if they did not do a great job. Again, the sad truth is that there are not many people who even care whether they follow through on their word or not. As Christians, we ought to live to the highest standard, and no one should ever have to question our word or our work ethic. Today, in 1 Timothy 1:15, God says that His Word is trustworthy, and we can all give thanks that we can trust God and His Word completely. The trustworthy statement God gives us is this, “that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.” This statement from God, written by Paul, is great news. God also guides Paul to say that he is one of the worst sinners of all as a reminder that without Christ, that statement describes us as well.
