Grace upon grace upon grace!
“And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.”
Who are all we? Each true believer.
So what is this fulness of Christ?
The Greek word translated here as fullness, literally means completion.
I love that! If we’re a child of God, we have received of Christ’s fullness, of His completion. We’ve received of His completed work on the cross, His complete victory over sin, His complete sacrifice for sin and of that completion have all we received grace for grace, a never failing, ever flowing river from Christ to the believer. Everything we need in Christ who is IN us!!
Yet still we strive in our own strength!!! How we need all our striving to be done on our knees in prayer, trusting God to help and keep us by His grace!
But Friend have YOU received of this inexhaustible supply that flows through each child of God?
If you have, then this river of grace is always abounding, always enough, if we just go and drink from it.
This grace and truth are such a contrast to the law.
Friend, if you’re in Christ you have laid down your burden of sin which includes the burden of not enoughness. All your insufficiency is laid down at the foot of the cross, the burden to strive in your own strength taken from you, the need to keep trying to keep all the rules and regulations rolled away and instead God has given you an endless supply of grace. His unmerited favour to you as an unworthy sinner, enabling you with His help, by His grace, to walk worthy of His love, to walk IN His love, the love of Christ that dwells in you by the Spirit, teaching and leading you. Friend, “he WILL guide you into all truth:”
We are Kept…’Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.’
Grace has no limit, use grace for one need and there’s more grace ready for the next, grace for grace, grace after grace, grace upon grace, endless, exhausted, FREE grace!
So Friend, once again, quit trying in your own strength and draw from this inexhaustible supply of God’s grace that is ALL sufficient for everything we need to live for the glory of God.
‘My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.’
