10/17/19: 1 Timothy 2:1-15; Psalm 87:1-7; Proverbs 25:18-19
In our Bible study series on “Fearless” one of the fears we reviewed was that God could become so tired of our sins that
he would just forget all about us. Of course that is not true and we see this reflected in the very beginning of Paul’s
letter to Timothy.
Paul had imprisoned members of the early church and his persecution even lead to the death of many believers. Yet, we see that he
knows that even those heinous crimes are covered by God’s grace.
1 Timothy 1: I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me trustworthy, appointing
me to his service. Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown
mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief. The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along
with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.
