DIG for Thursday the 24th of August…..a secular song about Jesus?…..John 1 v 17

I use many sources as inspiration for my DIG blog; most ideas obviously come from the Word and Biblical teachers, however I’ve also written recently on football and secular songs.

It was a secular song that has given me the idea for the DIG tonight.

Here are a couple of lines from the song in question.

“Pretty amazing grace is what you showed me, pretty amazing grace is who you are. You led me to that higher place and showed me that love and truth and hope and grace were all I needed”.

You would actually think that this was a song about Jesus!

Jesus showed many people grace (including the Samaritan woman at the well and the woman taken in adultery), but according to the Word He actually was grace.

We read that Moses gave the law, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ (John 1 v 17).

In other words Jesus was truth and Jesus was grace.

And Jesus is indeed all we need.

He provides grace and truth, but also love and hope.

There is no hope in this life or in eternity without faith in Jesus, without hoping and trusting in His love, grace, and truth.

Jesus is the only way to the Father; He is the way, the truth and the life (John 14 v 6).

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that Jesus has provided all that I need for life, thank you that Jesus is grace and truth”.

John 1 v 17…..For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ
