A Pondering:

John Newton, the converted slave trader who gave us the hymn “Amazing Grace” once spoke of the three great wonders he would experience in heaven.

The first wonder, he said, would be to see many people there he did not expect to see.

The second wonder would be to miss a great many other people he did expect to see.

And the third wonder – the wonder of all wonders – would be to find himself there.


We will all be surprised by the wonders of heaven.
