I Was Blind, Now I See
"Amazing grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now am found; Twas blind but now I see."
John Newton wrote "Amazing Grace" in celebration of his conversion to Christ. For many years he had been a slave trader. But one day, as he was on his way to America with his human cargo, he read a sermon by John Wesley. Wesley convicted his heart, and Newton saw the error of his ways. He turned the ship around, unloaded the slaves, and conmitted his life to Christ. He was blind but now he could see.
It is amazing how God can speak to the human heart through the Word proclaimed and how that Word changes the human heart. It is amazing when someone finally sees that they have been traveling on the wrong path and they need to change. It is amazng when the eyes of the heart are opened and we see the world in a whole new way. We call it salvation.
Church is a place that trains us to see rightly. Church is a place where we have our vision corrected and we see what is important. Church is a place where we learn to have open hearts, open minds, and open doors.
Come and see!!
All the best through Christ,
