This week, we looked at verse 3 of Amazing Grace and focused on the idea that the Christian life is not one devoid of trials. We looked at Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians in which he details some of his own dangers, toils, and snares. What might your neighbor be going through right now, that you could pray for them or be the hands and feet of Christ to them? What are you going through right now that you need to rely on Christ to be your strength and hope?
In this series, Grace is Still Amazing, we will be unpacking the verses of the old hymn, Amazing Grace, one at a time and studying the Scriptural ideas that led John Newton to pen that classic song. The verses of Amazing Grace have a lot to teach us about who God is, who we are, and what kind of lives we are called to live. The words of the song may be so familiar to us that we tend to “sing through” them without giving them much thought or allowing them to penetrate our minds, hearts and souls with the truth they carry. Listen in with us as we discover that, almost 200 years after the lyrics were written, God’s grace is indeed still amazing!
