Calvary’s Grace

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8

William Newell as a boy had serious problems and was torn apart by turbulence. But he did keep the rules and day by day ventilated his frustrations to Dr. Torrey, president of Moody Bible Institute. Years later William was a beloved professor at Moody Bible Institute. He thought he should put his testimony into verse. The result was the hymn, “At
Calvary” which he wrote in 1895 on the back of an envelope. He said that had if he not gone through his troubled years he might not have fully understood the importance of Calvary’s grace.

Prayer for the week:

Dear Lord, we sing praises to You. God grants forgiveness by surrounding us with His love. He
hears our pleas for help. The greatest gift we can give is ourselves to the service of God. We must
allow the Holy Spirit to guide us in our service. Amen
