Grace to the Ghetto Suburbs

()

His mother was on one side yanking his arm. His father was on the other side yanking his arm. Both were yelling to him, “choose who you want to be with!” At the time, Jahill Richards was only three or four years old. In this testimony, hear how God’s grace extended to a young man in the suburban ghetto, and how this grace displays so clearly the truth of : “This saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost. But I received mercy for this reason, that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might display his perfect patience as an example to those who were to believe in him for eternal life.”

If you enjoyed this testimony, make sure to peep Jahill’s spoken-word piece.

15 The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost. 16 But I received mercy for this reason, that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might display his perfect patience as an example to those who were to believe in him for eternal life.
