1 Timothy 1:15
It is a true saying, in which all may put their faith, that Christ Jesus came into the world to give salvation to sinners, of whom I am the chief:
1 Timothy 1:16
But for this reason I was given mercy, so that in me, the chief of sinners, Jesus Christ might make clear all his mercy, as an example to those who in the future would have faith in him to eternal life.
And I say to you that to everyone who gives witness to me before men, the Son of man will give witness before the angels of God.
