John Newton quotes
I am not what I ought to be, I am not what I want to be, I am not what I hope to be in another world; but still I am not what I once used to be, and by the grace of God I am what I am.
Although my memory’s fading, I remember two things very clearly: I am a great sinner and Christ is a great Savior.
This is faith: a renouncing of everything we are apt to call our own and relying wholly upon the blood, righteousness and intercession of Jesus.
Thou art coming to a King,
Large petitions with thee bring,
For His grace and power are such
None can ever ask too much
If we seem to get no good by attempting to draw near to Him, we may be sure we will get none by keeping away from Him.
John Newton’s last words: I am still in the land of the dying; I shall be in the land of the living soon.
