Jesus is faithful to the faithless

Jesus is faithful to the faithless:

2 Timothy 1 “if we are faithless,

he remains faithful,

for he cannot disown himself.”

What did Jesus say about the last generation of Israel who saw Him for 3 years and still did not believe!

Matt 17 “17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? “

The worst sinners were in that generation.

Judas betrayed Jesus.

Peter denied Jesus.

The 12 Apostles deserted Jesus.

But the chief of all sinners was Paul who killed Christians just like the Pharisees killed Jesus.

1 Timothy 1 “15 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.”

What did Jesus do to the Pharisees?

Did He curse them? No He loved them and forgave them!

Luke 23 “34 Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.””

What did Jesus do to Paul because he was doing the same thing – killing Christ (by killing christians).

Acts 10 “4 He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?” 5 “Who are you, Lord?” Saul asked. “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,” he replied. 6 “….(Paul) is my chosen instrument to proclaim my name to the Gentiles and their kings and to the people of Israel. “

Jesus did not judge Paul but gave him grace to be the main apostle of the new testament – the apostle who preached more grace than anyone else.

This is our beloved Jesus – LOVE that keeps no record of wrongs!

He died on the cross to forgive our sins and rose from death to make us righteous and perfect by His grace.
