We can sure share the good news ofJesus Christ then change his lives. We may not ever get the entire world save.In fact, I think scripture teatures that does not, but we coal certainly share the Gospelwith our NA. Perhaps he or she might be saying we could change that one coulmake an eternal difference or that one so hen an we find in the text today wemay not be able to end seein, but we should try to set people freeand by the ways we're reading this text today.

John Newton's, favorite, verses, dirid O me fifteen fifty Merton before he would sayingexperience at least two near death experiences once when he was twelve years old,driding a horse. He fell from the Horse in his head, recovered from it couldhave easily been near death hiteres. Another time was when he and somefriends took a robo out into the ocean to look at an anchored British ORSA and h. He was going to go with them,but he was detained for five minutes, so his friends left without the boat cats, Eze and all his breadsdread.

By the way John Noon couldn't swear, he would have drowned also ad he benwith hit. Moreover, he had a dream in which hesaw himself following under the Rap and judgment of God. All of these experiences had atremendous impact on, but in his own words, he said in each case is then came the storm at sea o he and grew of the slave tradeship. He waswith thespear of like to cry out to God for Merce. It was on that day in that store, fearful of the ship, capsizing and hiscrying out to God from hers.
