Grace is the Sweetest Sound
 
Lyrics by: Thomas Kelly (1769 – 1854) - Passed away at 85 years old!
____________
 
1 GRACE is the sweetest sound
That ever reached our ears;
When conscience charged and justice frowned,
'Twas grace removed our fears.

2 'Tis freedom to the slave,
'Tis light and liberty;
It takes its terror from the grave,
From death its victory.

3 Grace is a mine of wealth
Laid open to the poor;
Grace is the sovereign spring of health;
'Tis life for evermore.

4 Of grace then let us sing,
A joyful, wondrous theme,
Who grace has brought, shall glory bring,
And we shall reign with Him.

5 Then shall we see His face
With all the saints above,
And sing for ever of His grace,
For ever of His love.

"Saints of the house of Caesar (Nero)"

In my readings this morning, I was reminded of this forgotten verse (see photo below).

This verse is found at the end of the Epistle to the Philippians by the Apostle Paul.

At the time the Apostle writes to the Philippians Saints (in city in Macedonia - today in modern Greece), Paul had been in prison in Rome. In fact this prison was attached to the state buildings where Nero, as the Emperor (the Caesar), (Phil. 1:13) was living.

Paul was a prisoner there for more than 2 years and was free to send and receive friends (Phil. 2:19 - 30); (Acts 28:30).

In essence, through Paul, a number of individuals from the household of Caesar were converted to Christ during those two years.

It is not clear who exactly they were but since the Historian Flavius Josephus writes (Antiqu., lib. xx. cap. 7) that Nero's wife, the Empress Poppaea, converted from Paganism to Christianity at that very same time, the new believers in Christ could very well be members of the Imperial household, guards, courtiers, servants and slaves.

This demonstrates how powerful the Divine word had been spread by Paul.

It is right therefore to assume that since Poppaea became a Christian, she probably would have granted permission to her surroundings and allowed visits to Paul... and probably did so herself.

All this under the nose of Nero, a worthless, cruel and diabolic ruler.

What a wonderful victory for the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
