Bride of Christ

A Prime Example!

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 realize that they, too, can believe in him and receive eternal life.  1Tim. 1:16  NLT

It is the only correct and humble attitude that the truely saved man must have.    Each of us should consider ourselves to have been the “worst of sinners”.     When what we used to be is compared to what Christ has done for us and what we are now, it should cause us to sit in wonder of His great patience and mercy.   

But our life is not for sitting.. it is for sharing!   It is your life, called away from the sinful past that is used by God as a, “Prime Example”!    if salvation has been given to you, then He can give salvation to anyone!

Beloved, there are still a lot of sinners out there.  Let them know that they too can believe in Him and receive the same eternal reward that you now have.   Regardless of what you think of them, they are no worse sinners than you once were.

Today, be a little patient and pray for all those, “Sinners", after all… God had mercy on you so you could be a, “Prime Example”!
