One of my all time favorite hymns is Amazing Grace. This song has touched the hearts of millions of people, been song in millions of churches and recorded in many different versions of the song, but the meaning is still the same. We are all saved by the grace of God!

Amazing Grace was written by John Newton, a slave trader, who had lost his soul in the search for power, money, and pleasure. When, out of the blue, grace came into his life, he changed completely and was moved to write, "I once was lost but now am found; was blind but now I see." Before his moment of grace, he could not see the truth of love, compassion, and kindness. But after he found his soul, he saw the light! And it was truly an AMAZING GRACE!!

Let us remember during this holiday season as we are out shopping and finding the perfect gift, that we have truly received the perfect gift - the gift of salvation and grace from God!

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God." Ephesians 2:8
