I am reading a book right now about John Newton.
It is quite interesting to see his whole life and how wicked he was
and how God changed him to a Christian who wrote the hymn "Amazing Grace."
He was a man who went through many dangers and toils
before he was saved , and finally, after a life of dishonoring his parents,and cursing God,
he repented and became a pastor in a little town of Olney,bringing many to Christ.
Here is a great man who used to be a wicked wretch whose name is written in the Book of Life.
His life is a testimony that God will forgive the worst of sinners.
