This Should be the Facebook Status of Every Christian

1 Timothy 1:15 Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners of whom I am the worst.

Paul wrote this not just to declare himself unworthy to save himself. He wrote this to remind every Christian that it is Jesus who saves us and not ourselves. Not our church, our religion, our charity, our good works.

And it is a great reminder for us to preach the gospel to ourselves everyday. Christ save me – the worst of sinners. Understanding this would make us cling on to Christ daily.
