My New Year Quote

I am a great Sinner and Christ is a great Saviour.

When I was teaching still we had a speaker come and the way he quoted these words from John Newton with such conviction, penitence, humility, and gratefulness that they were branded into the thick hide of my mind:

I am a great Sinner and Christ is a great Saviour.

Being at a particular lack of New Year’s resolutions this year, I am simply going to try to remember those words every morning and evening, and not so simply, to grasp them with my whole being.

I am a great Sinner and Christ is a great Saviour.

May I not forget this year from Whom I come, by Whom I exist, and to Whom I go.

I am a great Sinner and Christ is a great Saviour.

  1. If you don’t mind the company, I’ll join you too. I will, however, add a coma between the two clauses. College has made my mind expand . . . And my soul shrink in certain grammatical areas. šŸ˜€

  2. Well, dear Serena, you may separate the clauses by a comma if you will, I however am going without because I don’t want any more separation between the Sinner and the Savior part – even if it is only a comma.
