Paul never stopped marveling at the fact that Jesus considered him trustworthy. He knew who he had been before Jesus. He knew now whose he was and who he was in Jesus. No longer bound by his past, he was transformed by God’s mercy and grace and entrusted with a new calling. What about you?
I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me trustworthy, appointing me to his service. Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief. The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. —1 Timothy 1:12-14
Prayer: Jesus, may I never stop marveling at the abundance of mercy and grace and love You pour out on me. I am not who I once was. You have made me new. Give me strength to serve well, I pray in Your name, amen.
