I thank him who has given me strength, Christ Jesus our Lord, because he judged me faithful, appointing me to his service, though formerly I was a blasphemer, persecutor, and insolent opponent. But I received mercy because I had acted ignorantly in unbelief, and the grace of our Lord overflowed for me with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.
1 Timothy 1:12-14 (ESV)

Without God’s grace and mercy none of us are strong and faithful, rather blasphemers, persecutors and insolent opponents of God. May God’s grace and mercy overflow in us so that we act in God’s love and not ignorance and unbelief.
