Full of Grace and Truth
We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
John 1:14, niv
Today countless people look for a god within themselves or in crystals or in trees or in a former life or in some statue or in a religious experience or in the stars. But John declares the awesome truth that the glory of God is not confined in any of those things, just as it is no longer confined on a mountain or in a Tabernacle or as a cloud or fire or as a reflection on a face. Instead “the Word became flesh and lived for a while among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”
John is saying emphatically, “I have seen Him!
“I’ve seen Him when He was alone.
“I’ve seen Him when He was surrounded by a crowd of people.
“I’ve seen Him dead,
“I’ve seen Him buried,
“I’ve seen Him risen,
“I’ve seen Him ascended.
And in every situation I have seen Him full of grace and full of truth! I have seen the face of God—in the face of Jesus!
Just Give Me Jesus
