I Was Shown Mercy

1 Timothy 1:12-17 “I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me trustworthy, appointing me to his service. … I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life.” So often we think our sins are too many for God, but when we read this passage in 1 Timothy we see the reality that Christ took away every single one of our sins. If a persecutor of the Church could be forgiven, how much more can we be forgiven.
* What is it about the Gospel that frees us from having expectation of God that other Christians have?
* Revelation 2:5 says to “repent”. How does that compare to the once-for-all forgiveness idea?
* I continually ask Christ for confirmation in my heart that I am His and all my sins are forgiven, but I am experiencing constant doubt that He loves me.
