God’s Grace For The Unbeliever

12 And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry; 13 Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. 14 And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.  (1 Timothy 1:12-14) 

Once a lost orphaned child with no where to go was found living on the streets by a rich king.  The king took the child into his home and gave him a new life and a better life.  We too were like orphans with no where to go living in a world void of Christ in our life.  We were unsaved.  We were lost.  We were without a home.  We had no where to turn.  Living on the streets.  But God, our King, in all of His mercy and grace took us from our former life and gave us a new life.  We once were sinners.  But now we are saved.  We once was lost but now we have been found.  We once was blind but now we see.  Thank God for His amazing grace, that saved a wretch like me.  Not only did He save us, but He also strengthened us.  He gives us everything we need to do the work that He has assigned to our hands.  He counted us dependable and faithful.  Not because of anything we did or who we are.  Not because we had any special abilities.  Simply put.  Only because of His grace for the repentant.  Thank God for His patience.  Thank God for His Mercy.  Thank God for His grace.
