He had a life style of doing whatever he pleased—without restraint. He entered military service only to desert and then suffer several public beatings. He linked up with a slave trader serving as his navigator. Eventually, he was beaten and consigned to the hold of the ship. There, bruised, bleeding, and diseased, he cried out to God, calling upon His grace to deliver him and His Son to save him.

God heard him. This man became an incredibly effective preacher. He wrote a hymn that told his life story. His name? John Newton. The song? It begins with these words:

“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.”

The grace of God has never encountered anyone beyond its grasp.
