Miss Janis was listening to the Master Club children sing “Amazing Grace” and thought she heard Abraham singing it, “Amazing Grace how sweet the sound, that saved a ‘Rench’ like me.” After they finished she explained that the right word in that phrase of the hymn was “wretch.” She told him, “That way, it includes all of us.” Abraham asked, “What is wretch?” Miss Janis said, “Well, that’s like a really bad sinner.” Abraham thought a moment and then responded, “Well, I’m that, too!”
I doubt that at 4 years old he could qualify as a wretch, but I am thankful to be able to sing it with my name in there! The wonder of God’s grace is that anyone who will come to the Saviour can have his own name inserted as well. No person, in their own merits, is any more qualified to come to the Saviour than the vilest wretch is, but the grace and mercy of God have opened the way for us!
2 Peter 3:9, The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
John 7:37, In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
