The Chief of Sinner

The Apostle wrote following This saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” —and I am the worst of them.The Voice wrote, It is fair to say that Paul never got over the fact that he violently persecuted the church. Even though his rampage against the first followers of Jesus had ended over 20 years earlier, he still grieved because of what he had done. But when Paul was older, he was moved to celebration and praise because God’s mercy is always greater than sin. The Lord Jesus called Paul in the midst of his campaign against Him so that he became a public display of Jesus’ patient love. So, if we think somehow we are too far from God’s mercy, then we should think again. Until encounter Jesus on Damascus road the Voice stated These are shocking, unexpected words that will change his life forever. Saul said, “Who are you, Lord?” And he said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. 6 But rise and enter the city, and you will be told what you are to do.”Acts 9:5-6

Note But rise and enter the city, and you will be told what you are to do.” Image if an individual tried destroyed your life You were put in position authority and they became vulnerable position. How would you react? Would state go the city, and you will be told what you are to do. Likely you give him a piece you mind not  go the city, and you will be told what you are to do. Remember Saul persecuted the church and his desire was destroyed  the church in infant stage as he declared though formerly I was a blasphemer, persecutor, and insolent opponent. Until he encounter Jesus on Damascus road the Voice stated These are shocking, unexpected words that will change His life forever. 

To understand Jesus, you need to understand Jesus mission was to redeemed humanity from the curse Adam and Eve curse called sin As declared Jesus 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.

Dr John Gil wrote, so persons under first convictions “tremble” at the sight of their sins, which rise up like so many ghosts, and stare them in the face, and load their consciences with guilt; at the swarms of corruptions they see in their carts, which appear to them an habitation of devils, a hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird; at the curses of a righteous law which threatens with damnation and death; at the future ju so persons under first convictions “tremble” at the sight of their sins, which rise up like so many ghosts, and stare them in the face, and load their consciences with guilt; at the swarms of corruptions they see in their carts, which appear to them an habitation of devils, a hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird; at the curses of a righteous law which threatens with damnation and death; at the future judgment, and the apprehensions of divine wrath; and at the voice and word of God, which strikes terror, cuts them to the heart, and like an hammer breaks the rock in pieces: and they are “astonished” at their own wickedness and vileness, which they had no conception of before; at the sparing mercy and forbearance of God, who has continued them in being, and not sent them to hell, to be among devils and damned spirits; at the light around by which they see their  dgment, and the apprehensions of divine wrath; and at the voice and word of God, which strikes terror, cuts them to the heart, and like an hammer breaks the rock in pieces: and they are “astonished” at their own wickedness and vileness, which they had no conception of before; and this was done internallythe conception of before; The pride of the Pharisee is now brought down to the dust; and the fury of the persecutor is not only restrained,

Ananias said, ‘The God of our fathers appointed you to know his will, to see the Righteous One and to hear a voice from his mouth; And now why do you wait? Rise and be baptized and wash away your sins, calling on his name.’ Jesus declares 16 But rise and stand upon your feet, for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to appoint you as a servant and witness to the things in which you have seen me and to those in which I will appear to you, 17 delivering you from your people and from the Gentiles—to whom I am sending you 18 to open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’

Who better preached the gospel in than the one who failed God Miserable. Jesus declares these words Simon the Pharisee 41 “A certain moneylender had two debtors. One owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. 42 When they could not pay, he cancelled the debt of both. Now which of them will love him more?” Simon answered, “The one, I suppose, for whom he cancelled the larger debt.” And he said to him, “You have judged rightly or the Apostle Paul Wrote but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more.

Perhaps these words compose by say bests Horatio Spafford  My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought! My not in part but the whole Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more for the remainder of life he declares the gospel

Remember the Paul wrote 13 letters in the new testament in which was included in the canon of scriptures in which miserable give us assurance that all sins are nailed to the cross
