Riches of Grace

Would it startle you if I dared to say that the living God has never done anything in His universe apart from Jesus Christ? Christians seem to be woefully unaware of the full meaning and measure of the grace of God. Why should we question God's provision when the Holy Spirit tells us through the apostle John that the Word who became flesh is "full of grace and truth"? Brethren, the stars in their courses, the frogs that croak beside the lake, the angels in heaven above, and men and women on earth below all came out of the channel we call the eternal Word! In the Book of Revelation, John bears record of the whole universe joining to give praise to the Lamb that was slain. Under the earth and on the earth, and above the earth John heard creatures praising Jesus Christ, all joining in a great chorus: "Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory and blessing!" Yes, surely the entire universe is beneficiary of God's rich grace in Jesus Christ!

Verse

God hath in these last days spoken by his Son . . . by whom also he made the worlds. Hebrews 1:2

Thought

Brethren, the stars in their courses, the frogs that croak beside the lake, the angels in heaven above, and men and women on earth below all came out of the channel we call the eternal Word!

Prayer

Dearest Lord, I am reminded once again of the cornerstone of our faith, which is Jesus Christ, and the grace with which we are blessed to have such an example.
