The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who called me here below,
Will be forever mine.
When we sing verse 6 of Amazing Grace, we focus on the idea that everything in this earth is temporary. However, we can take solace int he fact that we serve an eternal God, who has called us His children. This sermon expounds on that idea and also details the concept of God using destruction to bring about purification.
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!
