Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners... (1 Timothy 1:15)
It's a wonderful motto for gospel ministry. Here is the heart of all Paul does. But when he relates it, he can't help but add his autobiography '...of whom I am the worst.'
Some ministries are good on the first half of the verse. That's absolutely crucial. But in my experience, few ally this to the second half.
Does our Christian ministry seek to build the appearance of correctness, togetherness, superiority? How much is dripping in repentance and broken-hearted humility? Are we just trying to speak out of strength to poor sinners over there? Or are we beggars showing other beggars where to find Bread?
