Amazing Grace

In these days of tough lives and rough treatment it may be hard to believe there is a God who is good who we can be safe with.

We hear so much about crazy religious fanatics blowing themselves up or knocking on your door like salesmen or on Sky TV asking for huge donations to heal our sicknesses that it is not surprising that the English have become cynical. Add to that the paedophile priest scandal of the Roman Catholic church and the homosexual chaos of the Church of England and everybody thinks they can just laugh at God. But man's wickedness is no excuse for us to mock God.

However, for people with real genuine concerns, the news of the Lord Jesus Christ as the complete saviour of sinners still comes like a breath of fresh air as it always has. Instead of criticising everybody else the person who is honest to God and honest with themselves knows that there really is a God who can make sense of everything. Such a person knows that in times of distress he really can call out and His maker will hear Him.

Such an honest person knows that there is nothing he can do to earn his place in heaven because he is a sinner by nature. He knows he needs God to do something if he is to have any hope.

So it is that "God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth on him should not perish but have everlasting life. " So reads the Word of God in the Gospel of John.

It may seem too good to be true, but the person who despairs of all hope in himself and puts his whole trust in the life and death of the Lord Jesus Christ in his place and to take the punishment due for his sins, has passed from condemnation to a state of justification and from death to life. It is that simple and yet it is the greatest miracle that God performs in a human soul.

It is our prayer that you will cry out to God for forgiveness and come to this saving faith so that you may rejoice in this Amazing Grace of God!
