Just started reading John Newton’s letters again, and was struck by his spiritual insight. In particular, Newton wrote three letters, describing the “manner of the Lord’s work in the hearts of his people”–basically describing the process of sanctification. The second letter jumped out at me, primarily because Newton describes parts of my life so well! Every Christian can relate at some level to the constant struggle with sin. It seems that, sometimes, God gives us over to some sin, and Newton explains why. I found his account quite compelling.
Luckily, Trinity Church (Myrtle Beach, SC), has put these three letters on-line!
