1 Timothy 1:12-17
and I thank the one who has given me strength, the Messiah Yeshua, our Lord, that he considered me trustworthy enough to put me in his service, even though I used to be a man who blasphemed and persecuted and was arrogant! But I received mercy because I had acted in unbelief, not understanding what I was doing. Our Lord’s grace overflowed to me with trust and love that come through the Messiah Yeshua. So here is a statement you can trust, one that fully deserves to be accepted: the Messiah came into the world to save sinners, and I’m the number one sinner! But this is precisely why I received mercy — so that in me, as the number one sinner, Yeshua the Messiah might demonstrate how very patient he is, as an example to those who would later come to trust in him and thereby have eternal life. So to the King — eternal, imperishable and invisible, the only God there is — let there be honor and glory for ever and ever! Amen.
If you remember how you were before you came to know Christ you too could relate with Paul as he tells Timothy that only through mercy and the transforming power of the Messiah Yeshua he came to a trust and love that only Yeshua could give. This is truly the heart of Christmas!
