How Does God display his unlimited patience? In saving sinners- people whose hearts are corrupt by nature and by choice. Paul recounts for Timothy how he was a violent persecutor of the church before he met Christ on the Damascus road (Acts chapter 9). Paul considered himself “exhibit A” of sinfulness, and yet God had a plan to redeem him and use him in order to display more mercy to those who would later believe on Christ for salvation. Our salvation is not just about our own lives, as magnificent as the gift of eternal life is.  Salvation is also about how God is displaying his glory and his mercy to an undeserving world, and how God is redeeming people’s lives and changing their hearts to be conformed to the image of Christ, our Savior.
