When we’ve been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’d first begun
In his final sermon of the Amazing Grace series, Pastor Pete shares some interesting details surrounding this final verse of the great hymn. Listen and learn about the ties that this great hymn has to slavery, and how that can also point us to poignant truths regarding our slavery to sin and the freedom we can have from it.
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!
