December 6 | GRACE
For from His fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. John 1:16-17
The re-entrance of God’s grace through Jesus arrived! God has always been a gracious God, from Moses’ day to now. The law revealed sin (Ro 7:7) and Jesus’ grace forgives sin. The fullness of God is revealed through Jesus. Not just grace – but grace upon grace…with truth…through Jesus Christ!
Grace upon grace is a lot of grace, which is what we all need. Many of us wrestle with self worth, being accepted or dealing with shame or the daily lies attacking our spiritual identity or nature.
So let us receive Jesus grace …and truth. Let’s be deeply grateful for His grace in our lives. There’s something deep, meaningful and special about receiving grace – and more grace, and the truth that Jesus is our Truth!
In return for grace (not as if we have to “pay God back”), let us give Him worship, honor, attention…and all our devotion for who He is…as the FULLNESS of God.
