Grace Upon Grace in Our Lives

And the Word became 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…And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for [upon] grace. (John 1:14, 16)

The grace of God is found in a person, Jesus Christ. “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Corinthians 8:9). Through His Son, the Father now proclaims His full message. “God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son” (Hebrews 1:1-2). One of Jesus’ titles is the Word. When He became a man, He was God’s incarnate message, His Word to humanity. “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.” As the early disciples watched Jesus living His perfect life of godliness, they were looking at the glorious revelation of God’s uniquely begotten (that is, virgin-born) Son. “And we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father.” His life was an overflowing demonstration of divine grace and truth: “full of grace and truth.”
