One for Sunday: The Hour I First Believed
I've been working on this little poster for a couple of days now, and I thought that today would be a good time to post it. :) This is one of my all-time favorite hymns, and these particular lines have special meaning.
I love the reminder that one of our most precious gifts is the Grace of Heaven. Even though various (Christian) faiths have differing definitions of what Grace really is and what exactly being saved means, I think this hymn resonates with all believers. It speaks the truth about the Atonement of Christ for our sins, that through the incomprehensible sacrifice He made, He extends his Grace to give each of us the chance to reach Heaven. This is the truth I remember every time I see or sing these words, from back in my own life in the hour I first believed, right down to this very hour, and it fills me with peace.
I hope this brightens your day! Please feel free to contact me if you would like the high-resolution file for printing in poster size.
I'm thinking about doing a series of lines from hymns in this same style. What do you think?
