God's Grace to Paul

12And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry; 13Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. 14And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. 15This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. 16However, for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show forth all long-suffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting. 17Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen. 18This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on you, that you by them might war a good warfare; 19Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck: 20Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered to Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.
