What do we have in Jesus Christ? I will let John show you:

And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.

– John 1.16–17

In Jesus, you can receive all His fullness, for He holds nothing back. He gives grace at the beginning and grace at the end, and all in between. He piles grace upon grace. His grace never runs out but whenever we are in need of grace, He provides more than we need.

Moses gave the Law, but Jesus brought the completion of all God’s gifts to us, namely the fullness and completion of grace and truth.


  • What more do we need than grace and truth?
  • Have you received His grace?
