But I Obtained Mercy

Nov 8, 2020    Pastor Bukky Olawale
“And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry; Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting. Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen. “ 1 Timothy 1: 12-17 (KJV)

Pastor Bukky Olawale started this sermon by sharing scripture documented in the book of Timothy. She explained that mercy is compassion or forgiveness shown, when someone who is in the power to punish. She made us understand that no sin is too much for God to forgive and that the mercy of God is limitless.
