John Newton (of Amazing Grace note)...
"We are poor, weak, inconsistent creatures—if left but a little to ourselves.
When I think how cold, dull and heartless I have been; how often I have wandered, how often trifled upon the brink of temptation; when I consider what powerful, vigilant, and subtle enemies are combined against me; and how many professors have fallen on my right hand and my left—I am amazed at the greatness of His mercy in preserving me! I am a living commentary, that there is forgiveness with Him—and that He is able to save to the uttermost!"
"Hold me up—and I shall be safe!" Psalm 119:117
