THE CHIEF OF SINNERS! – 1 Timothy 1:15 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional


1 Timothy 1:15 –  Devotional

1 Timothy 1:15

“This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.”

The Apostle Paul was not ashamed to admit that he was a sinner. In fact he goes so far as to describe himself as the chief of sinners. That may or may not be the truth since only God knows the heart of each person and He alone is the One who is able to deal with our sinful nature and actions.

It is possible to try and convince ourselves that we are not all that bad. All too often we measure our actions by others and may even convince ourselves that since we are not guilty of the sins that others have been guilty of, we are doing okay.

If ever there was a suffering saint of the Lord I would place Paul near the top of the list. He, on the other hand, does not see himself that way. Paul describes himself as the chief of sinners. He knows what is in his heart and knows that he falls short of God’s standard of righteousness.

How would you describe yourself? When there no one is watching, how do you conduct yourself? Just remember, others may not be able to see, but God not only sees our actions but He also knows our thoughts. I pray that we might be quick to confess our transgressions and walk with the Lord at all times.

Blessings dear hearts walk with God today and become a blessing!
