It is Well With my Soul

I was exposed to this hymn at the weekend.

I mean, sure, I’d heard it before, sang it before, but this was the first time since my ‘grace’ revelation.

It seems the writer – Horatio Spafford – had had a grace revelation, too.

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

My sin, not in part but the whole.

Old Horatio knew his sin had been dealt with once for all.

He knew that all of his sin, past present and future was crucifed on that cross with Christ.

He knew, just as Paul teaches, that he had been set free from sin.

He knew that he was approved by God.

Approved and beloved.

As we are.

No wonder it was well with his soul.

It is well with my soul, as well!

Do you know that all of your sin was crucified with Christ?

not in part, but the whole

Is it well with your soul?
