“Made to Make Much of God”
1 Timothy 1:15-17
I look forward to worshipping with you all this Sunday and want to encourage you to look at the text in 1 Timothy 1:15-17 as you prepare for the proclamation of God’s Word in the gathering of the church. As couple questions to think about through the text. Why would God be this merciful? What is God up to? Why does God save people? What is the aim of the gospel? In short, the goal of salvation, the plan of God in redemption, and the aim of the gospel is to display the glory God. In other words, God saves people to display his glory. The chief aim of the gospel is the glory of God, and the chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy him forever.
1 Timothy 1:15-17 gives us three expressions of this truth. The aim of the gospel is 1) to save undeserving sinners, 2) to display his great mercy, and 3) the praise of his name. Lord willing, we will look at these and consider some implications in our gathering this Sunday.
Grace and peace,
