Recently a popular magazine noted that it is now possible to own a hand held satellite receiver. Already installed on some new autos, the devices work with the global positioning satellite to tell you exactly where you are. They can now be carried and are designed for hikers and other walkers. Sadly, the story's title was taken from John Newton's beloved hymn, Amazing Grace. The title of the piece was "I Once Was Lost But Now Am Found."

It is unfortunate that this great song has been put to such secular uses. Nowadays you can hear the tune to Amazing Grace in some very unlikely and ill-suited places. However much the song is misused, the original message of it must not be forgotten. To be lost in the spiritual sense is a very serious thing. To be the recipient of grace is a very sacred thing. Unfortunately many today do not know how amazing grace really is.
