Amazing Grace! These words are so powerful.Chains gone...set free! As Christians it means the world to us. Because of the work Jesus did on the cross, we have been set free.
But even today, in our world where sin and death have yet to face their promised ultimate destruction by Jesus, many are not free. The sex trade industry is booming. Women (and men) are stuck in abusive relationships. Many are consumed by addiction. All of us are slaves to our sins.
God frees, God redeems, God heals, God ransoms, and God forgives. Again and again and again.
Unending love. Amazing grace. Chills.Every.Time.
The song, Amazing Grace, was written by John Newton in the 1700's. He originally rejected Christianity and worked in the slave trade. But God. There can always be a but God. He knew up close and personally what bondage looked like, in the eyes of those he had enslaved and deep within his own heart. Enjoy this clip about the song Amazing Grace from pastor and motivational speaker Wintley Phipps.
