Amazing Grace June 7, 2019

John Newton sank so low that at one point he became a slave trader. But in 1748 a violent storm off the coast of Ireland battered his vessel so severely, that he called out to the Lord Jesus for forgiveness and became a new person. His story reminds us that “The Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” and that it is “by grace we are saved through faith, and that not of ourselves, it is the gift of God not by works…” To describe his conversion, on New Year’s Day in 1773, Newton penned the words to the now famous hymn “Amazing Grace.” Its words declare that forgiveness of the worst sins, is possible, through the mercy of God. “Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me, I once was lost but now am found, was blind but now I see.”
