Why do we receive mercy?

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. 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.  —1 Timothy 1:15-16

John Piper, in a sermon “Christ Jesus Came into the World to Save Sinners”

Christ picked the chief of sinners to demonstrate to you today what his mercy and power can do in your life. Don’t belittle the mercy of God by saying that you cannot be changed!
