And Can It Be?

The Sunday evening lesson for March 20, 2022.

And Can It Be? (Romans 5:1-8)

Phillip Stuckey, March 20, 2022
Part of the Hymn Studies series, preached at a Sunday Evening service

Our God is an awesome God whose wonders should never cease to amaze and impress us (Job 5:8-9). The majestic beauty of creation and the intricate designs and working of the universe are astonishing. But for the child of God there is no greater wonder than the spiritual blessings, the redemption that God has offered in Jesus. Is there one among us who has never stopped to wonder about God’s grace and asked, “Why me, Lord” (Ps. 8:3-4)? The hymn, “And Can It Be?” by Charles Wesley, helps us to both consider and praise God for His amazing love in Christ.

Romans 5:1–8 (Listen)

5:1 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die—but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
