God’s amazing grace
By Patsy Lambert - Contributing Columnist
Grace is the unmerited favor of God toward mankind. Grace can not be bought. It is a free gift of God.
When we think of Jesus dying on the cross, we can be assured that God’s grace is real. The grace of God has proven to be real through many experiences we have been through and has been found to be enough grace for the problems we have faced and will face. We may not understand the grace that God has for us. The song Amazing Grace helps us to be thankful of God’s Grace. This song never gets old.
“Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost but now I’m found, was blind but now I see.”
“Through many dangers, toils, and snares I have already come. Was grace that brought me safe thus far and grace will lead me home. “
“Was grace that taught my heart to fear and grace my fears relieved. How precious did that grace appear the hour I first believed.”
When we’ve been there ten thousand years bright shinning as the sun. We’ve no lest days to sing God’s praise than when we first begun.
How many times have we sung this song in church and really realized the true meaning of it. God’s grace is free to everyone for the asking.
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.” Ephesians 2:8.
