Christ came into the world to save sinners

Salvation is a gift from God, which was paid at the price of blood through His beloved son Jesus. Christ was crucified so us could to obtain salvation, even without us deserving it.

Something we must remember is that Jesus came into the world out of love, so that we may have life and life in abundance, and it is for this reason that the Apostle Paul reminds the Ephesians the purpose of Christ when He came to this world:

Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst.

1 Timothy 1:15

Many times we think that Jesus came to look for righteous people, however, remember the words of the Master when they saw Him meeting with publicans and sinners:

11 When the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?”

12 On hearing this, Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick”.

Matthew 9:11-12

And this is why Paul reminds us that Jesus came to save sinners, and the same apostle considered himself one of them, when he says at the end of verse 15 of 1 Timothy 1 “of which I am the worst.” And since he was a sinner, he continues saying:

16 But for that very reason 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.

17 Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

1 Timothy 1:16-17

Let’s not forget that we are simple sinners and that God showed His mercy for us by giving His only Son so that we could be saved.
