Amazing-Friday Freedom

“But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),” 
Ephesians 2:4-5

God’s grace is truly amazing. We once were lost in spiritual darkness. Just like someone stumbling around a pitch black room, we were just stumbling around in life. Not knowing where to go or what to do; just lost. But God gave us spiritual sight. You were dead, but God has given you new life! You were guilty, but God has justified you through the work of the Lord Jesus Christ! I don’t know about you, but just thinking about God’s amazing grace is uplifting, encouraging, and just gives me the strength to run on. Now we can truly sing with John Newton:
“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.
When we've been here ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise...
Than when we've first begun.”
