You are reading Today’s Billy Graham’s Daily Devotional
He hath made him to be sin for us . . . that we might be made the righteousness of God . . . — 2 Corinthians 5:21
Augustine was one of the greatest theologians of all time. He was a wild, intemperate, immoral youth. In spite of his mother’s pleadings and prayers, he grew worse instead of better. But one day he had a personal encounter with Jesus Christ that transformed his life.
He went back to England and became an Anglican clergyman. He wrote scores of hymns, one of which has become the modern popular song, “Amazing Grace.” This is what Christ can do for anyone who puts his trust in Him.
Prayer for the day: Your amazing grace transformed even my unworthy life—I love You, Lord Jesus!
