AMAZING GRACE


AMAZING GRACE

Romans 5:15 (NKJV) But the free gift is not like the offense. For if by the one man’s offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to many.

Here in Romans, Paul, by the Spirit of God, shows us the difference between Adam and Jesus.  We see how great the work of Jesus Christ is, and that, even with the fall of the human race, what Jesus did was so much greater!

In this verse, we see that the free gift that God gave to us, Jesus, is not like the fall of Adam.  In fact, Paul goes right on to say that through Adam many die, but through the grace of our loving Father, His mercy and goodness abounds to many.

Now I do not know about you, but I am sure glad that God’s grace, and not His judgment, is abounding to me.  You see, when a person receives Jesus as his personal Lord and Savior, the blood of the spotless Son of God washes all of his sins away.  God does not see us as poor old sinners, but He see us as new creations in Christ!  He sees us born again.  In fact, this work of regeneration is so powerful that Almighty God does not even remember our past sins!

Grace is God’s unmerited and undeserved favor.  We did not deserve it, but His great love for you and me provided it.  That is why, throughout all eternity, it will be His grace that will flood our hearts.  That is why we can sing a song like “Amazing Grace,” and it is fresh each day.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me.

I once was lost but now am found, was blind, but now, I see.

T’was Grace that taught my heart to fear. And Grace, my fears relieved.

How precious did that Grace appear the hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares we have already come.

T’was Grace that brought us safe thus far and Grace will lead us home.

The Lord has promised good to me, His Word my hope secures.

He will my shield and portion be as long as life endures.

When we’ve been here ten thousand years bright shining as the sun.

We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise then when we’ve first begun.

CONFESSION:  Sing Amazing Grace.
