1 Timothy 1:14-16 Worldwide English (New Testament) (WE)
14 Our Lord showed me much love and kindness. I believed in him and had the love which comes from Christ Jesus.
15 These are true words and everyone should believe them. `Christ Jesus came into the world to save bad people.' And I am the worst of all.
16 Jesus Christ wanted to show that he is very, very patient. And so he was kind to me who was the worst. He did this so that others would believe in him and live for ever.
