John 1:14 “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”
Grace: God giving me what I don’t deserve.
Grace is not an attribute that we witness much on a daily basis. The world seems to teach give them only what you must. Many people say but he doesn’t deserve that. We don’t deserve salvation and yet, “Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures.” How often do we bestow grace upon others.
Paul said it like this a few verses later in I Corinthians 15:10,
“But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.”
Because of God’s grace bestowed upon us, we must labor more abundantly for the truths of God’s Word. How is your labor? Is it full of Grace and Truth?
