Today's Word of Encouragement from Wayne:
"The Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth"
Let us all gratefully thank God that His glory is full of grace and truth. In this day we are blessed and privileged to behold "the glory of God in the face of Christ" (2 Corinthians 4:6). It is as John declared, writing of Jesus, "for of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace" (John 1:16). Jesus Christ is our "Immanuel, which translated means, ‘God with us’" (Matthew 1:23). Immanuel dwells within us right now and we are exhorted, by God our Father, to behold His glory in His Son, "full of grace and truth." This is completely for our blessing, renewal, strength, joy, peace, and ever-growing faith, hope, and love in our Lord.
Let us become "full of grace and truth" today by beholding our indwelling Savior’s glory, this "grace upon grace" fullness of Jesus. We become full when we behold His fullness, and what a blessed fullness this is; "full of grace and truth." God is inviting each one of us to participate, by His grace, in His Own fullness, His Own presence. Beloved child of God, receive and be transformed by this wonderful "grace and truth" blessing, yet another gift of love given to you by the greatest, truest, One and only original Christmas Gift to this world, Jesus Christ! Hallelujah!
