Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll

 

Full of Grace and Truth
by Charles R. Swindoll

Grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ.
John 1:17


While thinking back on his days with Jesus, John (one of The Twelve) remembers there was something about Him that was like no one else, during which time His disciples "beheld His glory." His uniqueness was that incredible "glory," a glory that represented the very presence of God. In addition, this glorious One was "full of grace and truth." 

Pause and let that sink in. 

It was His glory mixed with grace and truth that made Him different. 

In a world of darkness and demands, rules and regulations, requirements and expectations demanded by hypocritical religious leaders, Jesus came and ministered in a new and different way—He alone, full of grace and full of truth, introduced a revolutionary, different way of life.

Remembering that uniqueness, John adds, "For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace" (John 1:16).
