1 Timothy 1:13-15 Worldwide English (New Testament) (WE)
13 There was a time when I did not respect him. I troubled his people. I said wrong things about him. But he was very kind to me, because I did not know what I was doing and I did not believe in him.
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.
