'HE CAME TO SAVE'

"This is a faithful saying and it is worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief (1 Tim. 1:15). 
.
Out of God's unconditional love, He sent Jesus into the world to save and not to destroy. But condemnation would manifest due to the world's refusal of accepting Him (John 3:17-19). 
.
No one is born a saint. We were all living in sin before we were delivered from it. Paul who was notably used of God was once a great sinner.
.
He was a blasphemer, a persecutor and injurious to Jesus' disciple (1 Tim. 1:13) but he obtained mercy because he did them ignorantly in unbelief.
.
The life all sinners are living is a life of ignorance because they lack the knowledge of what is right (Hos. 4:6).
.
Jesus came to save sinners and to save them to the uttermost (Heb. 7:25). You aren't save temporarily but eternally (Is. 45:17). He didn't just save your soul, He saved every aspect of your life.
.
Are you still living in sin? Salvation comes when you come closer to the Savior. He is knocking at the door of your heart (Rev. 3:20) to deliver you from that secret sin, addiction or sinful life. No sin is so great that He cannot save. If He can save great sinners in the Bible and in our modern world, He will save and deliver you.
.
Cry out to God for forgiveness (Ps. 51). Confess your sins (name them) and repent genuinely.
.
He has paid the price for your sins on the Cross and the Cross is your point of contact for deliverance from sin and the nature of sin. Have you experienced the saving power of the Cross (Gal. 2:20)? Your victorious life over sin is found at the Cross.
.
Remember, He came to seek and save the lost (Luke 19:10) so that they can have everlasting life (John 3:16).
