“Out of his fullness we have all Received Grace in place of grace already given.” John 1:16 (NIV)
The Gospel of John begins by telling us how the Son of God took on a human form and lived here on earth. Our verse today reminds us how much good we have received because Jesus did this, because God the Father sent His Only Son to earth for us. When John wrote these words, Jesus had returned to heaven but the Blessings His followers had received from Him were still continuing. And they still continue for each of us. We don't need to go through a day without experiencing the blessings of the Lord. And the blessings we received are not limited to one-a-day. God's grace can be as our verse says, blessing upon blessing. God's grace comes to us multiple times and so we receive grace heaped upon grace we have already received. So aren't you glad my friend,that God continues to pour out His blessings on His children? His storehouse is great and has an endless supply of blessings for us. What an encouraging promise we have received from God.
