“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.”
“For from His fullness we have received…” From Him and only Him, not anything else have I received His fullness, and from Him I have received grace. I know for me the many, many things I have done wrong and the many, many sins I have committed I could not be more grateful to have His grace upon grace. If Christ treated me the way that I treated Him for years I would be incredibly lost. I took Him for granted, I treated Him like my jeanie that I carried around in my pocket everywhere and only took Him out when I needed Him. He was just another person to me that I didn’t believe loved me for who I really was. A terrible sinner that was hurtful in her words and actions. Who honestly didn’t care if she hurt someone because she wanted them to feel the same pain that she was feeling all the time. Without His love and grace I would not be able to trust anyone and would be caught up in so much more than what the Lord saved me from. Praise the Lord for His grace upon grace. He doesn’t just show me grace once but he continues to, every hour, ever minute, every second of EVER SINGLE DAY. I am only human, I need His grace upon grace. I have received so much grace from Him and His love has saved me from myself so many times. “Grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.” He payed the price for me on the cross and all of my many sins are gone because of His love for me. At the moment that I least deserve His love He shows me it , the moment that I least deserve His grace He shows me. God, at the moment that He gave His son for me, He knew that His son would pay the price for my selfishness and freshly desires that I gave into way before I was even born. The only way that I can begin to show how thankful I am for His fullness and His grace is by showing it to others and the only way I will be able to show that kind of grace and love is with Christ leading me and speaking through me. He has shown His love and grace to everyone and I being His child should try to as much as I possibly can to show His grace and love.
