“Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given.” John 1:16 (NIV)
After starting with a description of Jesus as the Son of God, as being with His Father from the beginning of all things, the Apostle John writes these words of encouragement. We are reminded, as we need to be all the time, how much we are receiving from our Lord Jesus Christ. We have become God’s children through faith in Jesus as our Savior but that is only the beginning of His blessings to us. Our verse inspires us to think of all the good things God is giving us each day. Because of His grace we receive blessings every day of many different kinds – so many that it would be difficult to count them. Let us agree today with the writer of our verse and be thankful for the grace we are receiving.
