God’s Amazing GRACE.- It is available and it is free for the taking.
“For it is by GRACE you have been saved, -through Faith-
not by yourselves, nit is the GIFT of God…….”.
Ephesians 2: V 8-9.
John Newton, slave trader, preacher, poet,
one of the greatest trophies of grace ever won.
His life truly manifested that
“God moves in a mysterious way,
His wonders to perform.”
From disgrace to “Amazing Grace”; when he wrote this Hymn_
Amazing grace!- how sweet the sound
That sav’d a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.
’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears reliev’d;
How precious did that grace appear,
The hour I first believ’d!
Thro’ many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
The Lord has promis’d good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.
Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease;
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who call’d me here below,
Will be forever mine.
Amazing Grace –
it is more likely to be based on – Ephesians 2:4-9,
Paul’s great treatise on Grace, which says:
But because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,
made us alive with Christ even-when we were dead in transgressions –
For it is by grace you have been saved,
– and this not from yourselves,
It is the gift of God –
not by works, so that no one can boast.
