Grace and Truth

Re:Verse reading–John 1:1-18 (day four)

Our new study of the book of John is called “Grace and Truth”.  Verses 14 and 17 tell us that Jesus was full of grace and truth and that they were realized in Him.  John focuses on these two character qualities of Christ as being most closely associated with salvation.  John’s focus is on Jesus’ full deity and full humanity…the truth of God’s plan for grace to mankind, resulting in salvation.

This week’s passage provides a prologue for the rest of the book.  Jesus existed in heaven with the Father, came to earth in the fullness of grace and truth to bring salvation to man.  The rest of the book of John expounds on how all this took place.  No richer book can be found to deal with the person of Christ.  Find someone to read this treasure with you this quarter.  Read and discuss together under the leadership of the Holy Spirit.  Introduce them to the Christ!
