Words of Faith From John Newton

John Newton might be known as the lyricist behind the hymn “Amazing Grace,” but he was so much more. He was a teacher, cleric, and abolitionist. His words of wisdom inspired many to action as he spoke out against the evil of slavery, but also spread the love of the Gospel. Here are my top 10 quotes from John Newton:

“Although my memory’s fading, I remember two things very clearly: I am a great sinner and Christ is a great Savior.”

“If the Lord be with us, we have no cause of fear. His eye is upon us, His arm over us, His ear open to our prayer – His grace sufficient, His promise unchangeable.”

“May we sit at the foot of the cross; and there learn what sin has done, what justice has done, what love has done.”

“Christ has taken our nature into Heaven to represent us; and has left us on earth, with His nature, to represent Him.”

“Our work is great; our time is short; the consequences of our labors are infinite.”

“We can easily manage if we will only take, each day, the burden appointed to it. But the load will be too heavy for us if we carry yesterday’s burden over again today, and then add the burden of the morrow before we are required to bear it.”

“Though troubles assail And dangers affright, Though friends should all fail And foes all unite; Yet one thing secures us, Whatever betide, The scripture assures us, The Lord will provide.”

“I am persuaded that love and humility are the highest attainments in the school of Christ and the brightest evidences that He is indeed our Master.”

“God often takes a course for accomplishing His purposes directly contrary to what our narrow views would prescribe. He brings a death upon our feelings, wishes, and prospects when He is about to give us the desire of our hearts.”

“All shall work together for good; everything is needful that He sends; nothing can be needful that He withholds.”
