Wave Upon Wave of Grace in Christ

"And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace." (John 1: 16)

We cannot handle all of Jesus' grace at one time.

And the grace that He wants to give us is greater every time that we receive it.

We simply cannot understand how forgiven we are at one time, nor should we ever claim that we have "arrived" when it comes to God's grace in our lives.

We need to grow in grace and knowledge of the Lord, that we may enjoy all that He has done, and wants to do in our lives:

"But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen." (2 Peter 3: 18)

Just to remind you how to grow in grace, it's all about knowing Jesus:

"2Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord," (2 Peter 1: 2)

When you seek to know the King of the Universe, to know Him who has been from the beginning (1 John 2: 14), there is too much that we can know, that we have not even touched the surface.

The grace that we receive cannot be a one-time deal, for Paul has invited us to keep receiving:

"For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ." (Romans 5: 17)

That word "receiving" is a present, active participle. We need His grace every day, wave up wave.

Let the supply of His Spirit take you places that you have not yet been to!
