Newton: three wonders of heaven

Tuesday, May 16, 2017
    Commemoration of Caroline Chisholm, Social Reformer, 1877
    For I am the least of the apostles, unworthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me.
    —1 Corinthians 15:9-10 (ESV)
    If ever I reach heaven I expect to find three wonders there: first, to meet some I had not thought to see there; second, to miss some I had expected to see there; and third—the greatest wonder of all—to find myself there.
    ... John Newton (1725-1807), The Amazing Works of John Newton, Bridge Logos Foundation, 2009 (see the book)
