John Newton lived in the 1700’s as a sailor and spent time on slaving ships. When he left that course of work in 1764 he became an Anglican priest. He preached against the slave trade and helped write pamphlets with the hopes of bringing it to it’s end. His preaching was fiery and powerful in London.

In this sermon, “Amazing Grace,” John Newton examines 1 Chronicles 17 and shows how it tells the story of where David came from, where David is, and where he is going. He then released the famous hymn, Amazing Grace, at the end of the sermon.Special thanks to Mark Andrews for being the speaker on this episode of Revived Thoughts. He is an adult fellowship teacher at Shawnee Bible Church.
