“Come, Now is the Time to Worship”

When we’ve been here ten thousand years
Bright, shining as the sun
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we first begun

Amazing Grace, by John Newton verse 6

         The liturgical Easter season ends today.  Tomorrow we enter “The Time after Pentecost.”  We have looked at Easter through the testimony of John Newton the author of “Amazing Grace” that is such a favorite hymn.  He does not try to convince us of his theories of the Bible.  He simplying calls out to his experience of God’s grace.  I want to close these six weeks with this worship song that resonated with so many hearts.  The video is by the author and gives context.  Praise because “Christ is risen” is for times we feel our prayers answered, for when we feel low and unheard, any place and any time.  Now is the time to worship.  Let’s not wait for eternity
