“Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners–of whom I am the worst.” 1 Timothy 1:15
Wretched man am I,
Claiming the title worst of sinners,
For persecute the church did I
With great disrespect.
Originally was I known as Saul,
Prosecuting and supporting the murder
Of many a Christian.
A miraculous change came one day upon me.
I saw a bright light,
Heard a questioning, authorative voice
And was blinded by the sight,
Remaining so temporarily.
Faith came to me that day
As a beheld the glory of God,
And different became my life.
I was overwhelmed with gratitude.
Evangelism is my specialty,
A task particularly annointed me,
And faithfully bear I this duty
To serve the Lord my God.
Like a shepherd I became
To the gentiles
In order to lead my God’s people
With faithful diligence.
Gratitude and perseverance preach I
To many a people,
For by God’s mercy was I taught
These two significant aspects.
