[Death to] A Great Sinner [who has] A Great Savoir

Filed under: Some Famous | Some Not So Famous — pilgrimskeyboard @ 7:41 pm

What is death to a believer in Jesus! It is simply a ceasing to breathe. If we personify it, we may welcome it as a messenger sent to tell us that the days of our mourning are ended and to open to us the gate of everlasting life. The harbingers of death, sickness, pain, and conflict are frequently formidable to the flesh, but death itself is nothing else but a deliverance from them all.

 

John Newton – 1801

(Author of the hymn – Amazing Grace)
