Today’s Sermon – Overwhelmed by Grace  - 1st Timothy 1:12-17


1 Timothy 1:12-17  (NKJV) - Glory to God for His Grace

12 And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry, 13 although I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an [a]insolent man; but I obtained mercy because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. 14 And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. 15 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. 16 However, for this reason I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show all longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are going to believe on Him for everlasting life. 17 Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to [b]God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.


Opening Remarks:


God’s grace overflows through the Gospel of Jesus Christ, that is Jesus came to save sinners. And like the Apostle Paul, let us bring glory to God by being witness’s of his Grace.
