A Weekly Word from John

John Newton was a scoundrel. He was a well-known slave trader whose life was so marked by sin that he shocked even fellow slave traders. During a raging storm in 1748 he clung to the helm of his ship, took stock of his life, and surrendered his life to Christ. Eventually he repented of his despicable profession and devoted himself to become a minister, never forgetting the amazing grace he had received. While many do not recognize his name, they know his famous song, “Amazing Grace.” The message is true, “Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me.” God’s grace changes men like John Newton, and it continues to change lives today.

Beaten, betrayed, and tortured to death. Why would Jesus (the incarnate Word who created the Heavens and Earth) endure these things? When questioned by Pilate, Jesus remained silent. He did not defend himself in word or in action. Instead, “for the joy set before him, he endured the cross” (Hebrews 12:2 ) because “God proves his own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8 ). It was our sin that made the cross necessary, but love and joy were the motivations of Jesus that sustained him on the cross.

This week marked an historic moment in our history. The first time in 99 years we have seen an eclipse pass from the west to east coast. It came quickly and went quickly. Perhaps you viewed it through special lenses or maybe just saw images on TV. The darkness came quickly and then it passed and the light returned in full force.
