My Chains Are Gone


Amazing Grace (My chains are Gone) - Michael W Smith/Chris Tomlin
My chains are gone
I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy reigns
Unending love, Amazing grace
Today we are going to sing this at church for the first time having been learning it for a few weeks. My chains are gone is a challenging lyric to sing. I am always asking myself when I sing it, "Can I really rejoice in this truth today?" I have no doubts that His work is enough for me, but am I really being set free in my life from the things He died for? And if so, is my heart on fire because of it?

ah yes, may that grace continue to weave together, reconcile, and transform the pieces of us that have no problem believing and the pieces that have questions. may we continue to press in to that amazing grace...

The questions in your reflection are so right, for everyone of us.
