The sum of my complaints amounts to this!

The sum of my complaints amounts to this!

(Letters of John Newton)

“Oh, what a wretched man I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death?” Romans 7:24ย 

I see much daily cause for humiliation–whether I look backward or inward.ย The sum of my complaints amounts to this–that I am a sick sinner, diseased in every part. I am burdened with a body of sin and death.ย 

But I have a little book, which I am enabled to believe is the sure Word of God. The doctrines and promises I meet with in it, which we callย the gospel, exactly suit my needs–and the temper and conduct it is designed to form, agrees with my leading desires.ย 

I was once far otherwise minded, and would doubtless have remained so–had not almighty power and sovereign mercy softened my heart. I would therefore praise Him for what he has done, and wait upon Him to do more, for I can do nothing for myself. In the mean time, instead of complaining–I would try to be thankful.ย 

If He has begun a good work, I dare not indulge a doubt of His carrying it on to completion. If He who isย the infallible Physicianย has undertaken my case–I shall not die but live, and declare the works of the Lord!
