A Wonderful Work of Grace

Nancy Emerson wrote about the wonderful grace of God in her assessment of Confederate soldier losses.

It is estimated that 142,000 Confederate soldiers have been converted as convicts since the war began. If human testimony can establish any thing it establishes this, that there has been a most wonderful work of grace in our army. How could a broader seal have been set upon the righteousness of our cause? The [Lord] has looked upon our affliction & our pain, & forgiven our sins, to a certain extent at least. I have gradually arrived at the firm persuasion that multitudes of our dying soldiers have been met by redeeming [grace]. Mrs. Gilbert one of our neighbors died a few months since, & when dying, she exclaimed [with delight] “O there’s Jimmy & Johnny.” They had come for their departing mother. They were two of [their] our young soldiers who had died not very long before from wounds received in battle. No one knew the state of their minds, but does not this circumstance support the hope that their pious mother’s prayers had been answered for them?

The conversion of this large number of Confederate soldiers was stated as a “wonderful work of grace.” Just think of it, all 142,000 who accepted Christ had God’s grace working in their hearts.

We often look for miracles to confirm the power of God. Yet, if we’ve been saved, we do not have to look too far because the greatest miracle of all took place in our hearts and minds upon our conversions.

From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another.

John 1:16
