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
Amazing grace; what is so amazing about God’s grace. It was God’s grace that spared Adam and Eve, whom God could have wiped from the earth on first sight after their fall. It was God’s grace that saved Moses while all other Hebrew babies were killed. It was God’s grace that kept Noah and his family from drowning when God flooded a sinful world. It was God’s grace that saved Abraham, Lot and their families when the God defying Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by fire to ash and dust. It was grace, grace- so amazing.
Grace, Amazing grace - Unmerited, undeserved favour from God. It was grace that made the blind to see, the lame to walk, the deaf to hear and the mute to talk. It was grace that saved a woman who committed adultery from death, that called Zacchaeus from a tree, that delivered a demon possessed child and raised a girl from the dead. Such grace, such amazing grace.
But what about me, an undeserving, unlovable, unsaved hellbound sinner? God answers: "My grace is all you need” But Lord, I am weak and have nothing to offer! And God answers again: "My grace is all you need, for my power is greatest when you are weak." (2 Corinthians 12:9) And through His Spirit God reminds me of His love for me. A love that made grace abound. A love that gave His son. And then I remember Jesus, whom because of such amazing grace, took my place, died on my behalf, died so that I may be set free, died so that I can live. Such grace, such amazing grace.
Grace, God’s amazing grace is also available to you. Driven by love, God wishes to flood you with His unmerited, undeserved favor. He wishes His face to shine upon you, His light to fill your soul. In darkness, by grace, He will be your light. In need, by grace He will provide. Thirsty, hungry, alone, depressed, scared, simply lost or simply blinded by the world God says: “My grace is all you need”
Such grace, such amazing grace, available to one and all, who calls upon Him, who chooses Him, and who follows Him. Amazing grace, how sweet the sound!
