Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
Using the lyrics to "Amazing Grace" as a foundation, author, church musician and worship leader, John Hadley, has revealed their deep, rich, biblical meaning which is a pensive reflection of Newton's practical theology-what he believed about and experienced from the marvelous grace of God. He was a prayerful and devoted student of the Bible and what he learned from the Bible and what he experienced from God's marvelous grace is written into the lyrics of his hymns.
