Amazing Grace: The Prisoner’s Anthem
When I received news of Chuck Colson’s passing, I was instantly overcome by the grace of God and his relentless desire to save the most wretched people on earth. Chuck Colson was a man transformed by the power of Christ. He entered those prison walls a convicted felon, but he found freedom like nothing on earth, even while being surrounded by iron bars and cement walls.
This is amazing grace! This is the same grace that saved me almost fifteen years ago. I was living a life of alcohol, drugs, and sex. But when the “light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ” shone into my heart, I was instantly transformed.
So I want to remind us to never forget the amazing grace of our Lord. When we sing the song “Amazing Grace,” let us remember to sing it as our anthem to God! We who were once lost have now been found; once blind but praise God, now we see!
Soli Deo Gloria
