John 1:16-17 “And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.”
John said that we have received “grace upon grace” because John understood that it was by God’s grace not only that Christ came to save us but also that His grace keeps us from sins and preserve us to the end of life.
God’s grace is unique, when God decided to extend His Grace; He made it free and exceedingly available to everyone. In the entitlement society that we live in, you would think that everyone would want to get in on something wonderful and free wouldn’t you? With Grace, the mindset though of most people says there has to be strings attached to it; everybody knows that there is no free lunch.
While some may not realize or understand, God’s Grace sustains us and keeps us. It goes before us, it carries us, His grace is our sufficiency. Once we have it, we can depend on it to be there, it never leaves. God’s Grace never stops working.
When we fall, God’s Grace picks us up, when we have lost our joy, Grace can restore us. Whatever we will ever encounter, Grace has already been and is already there waiting on us to arrive at, with the solution and provision for the need, before its ever encountered. Is it any wonder that Gods grace is called Amazing?
When God sent His Son from heaven to save us, He also brought with Him a grace that was greater than any grace that God had ever shown before. But that does not mean that God had never before shown mankind any grace. The grace given in Christ was grace on top of grace, and this is the “grace upon grace” that John said we have received from God’s fullness. May God make us all partakers of that grace while it may be found?
Beloved, grace doesn’t come through religion, or a beautiful building, or someone else’s relationship with the Lord because if it did, more people would be experiencing it to an overflowing level in their lives. It can only be found, through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. He is in the life changing business. He has a plan and a purpose for your life and wants to give you hope if you can surrender to Him today and let Him release His double grace upon you.
Grace of God upon on you my brothers and sisters in Jesus mighty name.
