John Newton’s Reminder


Heard a great quote today, which to many of you is probably not new, but I thought I would share.  John Newton, near the end of his life, with his health failing said this:

“My memory is nearly gone, but I remember two things: That I am a great sinner and that Christ is a great Savior.”

—John Newton, quoted in Jonathan Aitken, John Newton: From Disgrace to Amazing Grace (Wheaton, IL: Crossway Books, 2007), 347

I pray that as followers of Christ, we will always remember that truth, especially in the good times.
