“This saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners”—and I am the worst of them.” (1 Timothy 1:15–16 HCSB)

Given that Paul just described himself as being  formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an arrogant man (vs. 13), he is not exaggerating when he says that he is the worst of sinners, he is merely writing what he believes.

Here’s the thing, If Christ Jesus came into the world to save Paul, then he came into the world to save [and can save] me…and you, dear reader, and also you.
