The Sunday evening lesson for May 15, 2022.
Jesus Saves (1 Timothy 1:12-17)Phillip Stuckey, May 15, 2022
Part of the Hymn Studies series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
There are some hymns we sing that are so easy to sing and understand and yet can still give us profound and challenging teaching and encouragement. The hymn “Jesus Saves” is a great example of this. All of us who are children of God know the simple truth that Jesus saves (John 14:6). And all of us who are children of God should be grateful and rejoice in our salvation (Phil. 4:4). But how many of us still feel a fervent obligation and urgency to share that message (Acts 17:30-31)? Let us consider this hymn that reminds us of our need to share the good news of the gospel.

1 Timothy 1:12–17 (Listen)
12 I thank him who has given me strength, Christ Jesus our Lord, because he judged me faithful, appointing me to his service, 13 though formerly I was a blasphemer, persecutor, and insolent opponent. But I received mercy because I had acted ignorantly in unbelief, 14 and the grace of our Lord overflowed for me with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. 15 The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost. 16 But I received mercy for this reason, that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might display his perfect patience as an example to those who were to believe in him for eternal life. 17 To the King of the ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
