The people of God gather on the Lord’s Day to worship Him. We do this in the power of the Holy Spirit, out of gratitude to our Almighty God who has revealed Himself in the person and work of Jesus Christ.

We humble ourselves before Him by declaring His worth, confessing His lordship, and rendering to Him honor and glory according to His Word.                       

There are many reasons to do this. None is more compelling than grace. God’s grace is unmerited favor from an unobligated giver. God owes us nothing yet gives us His all — the indescribable gift of His Son.

                       

John Newton, whose beloved hymn “Amazing Grace” we often sing, summarizes the essence of grace in his simple yet profound testimony in his sunset years:

"My memory is nearly gone; but I remember two things:

That I am a great sinner and that Christ is a great Savior!"

                       

May we embrace Newton’s testimony as our own and delight to praise our God for “his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved” (Ephesians 1:6b) .
