Selwyn draws our attention too the last words of the Bible, Revelation 22:21 (NIV): ‘The (amazing) grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.’
He writes: “Doesn’t it strike you as fascinating that the last word in the Bible is a word about grace? And, so it should be, for it is not only the first word in everything but the last word also. Nothing is greater than grace. … Christians are amazed by grace. Though we may not realise it all the time, that is what we all thirst for. And when it is seen – not just sung – then all the world will fall silent before it (Jesus). It’s amazing. Utterly amazing.”
It’s amazing for us, as followers of Jesus, because we fully realise that our fantastic eternal life with Jesus is a free gift; fully paid for, by our loving God – who was willing to die for us, while we were still sinners. Amazing!
