Capt. John Newton was a drunken slavetrader. A man so poorly regarded that his own crew refused to rescue him when he fell off the ship. A man who was flogged publically for his behavior. A captain who was so cruel and careless that his own crew were often without food. Yet, as the years went by, and he faced death at sea, he turned to a sovereign GOD. The words of “Amazing Grace” fit John Newton….Amazing Grace, How sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me………Romans 3:23 tells us that all have sinned and come short of the glory of GOD.
Look in the mirror. Is there a bit of John Newton in you? Were you once lost but now found. Blind but now I see. Other than looking a day older, what do you see this morning? Is there a glow of Amazing Grace on your face?
