Today we begin 1 Timothy, which is the first letter Paul wrote to Timothy. The letter is meant as an encouragement and Paul is blunt about needing Christ’s presence in his life just as much as anyone. In 1 Timothy 1:15 Paul says, Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners – of whom I am the worst. None of us is without sin. Even in our best of days, we are not sinless. Christ died for us because we cannot do it without Him. Praise God He did.
