This morning on Good Morning America, the famous Italian singer, Andrea Bocelli, sang the hymn, “Amazing Grace”.  To me it was not only a song, but it was the beauty of the music and the message that brought me to tears.  God gave Andrea Bocelli a great voice indeed, but gather still was God’s gift to me of the amazing grace that saved my soul!

Ephesians 2:8 says this very clearly.  “For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God”.  At this beautiful season of the year, many gifts will be given to friends, acquaintances and family.  The gifts  really do not mean much until they are accepted by the ones to whom they are given.  The same is true of the gift God has offered to me to enter into His family and have Eternal Life!  I must accept His gift to me by faith.  When I do this, especially at this time of the year, when we celebrate the birthday of Jesus Christ–it really becomes,  AMAZING GRACE, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me, I once was lost, but now I’m found, was blind but now I see”!

Thank God today for this gift that is offered to each one of us!
