Grace

". . .  grace and truth came by Jesus Christ."

Grace: the divine influence upon the heart, and its reflection in the life.

"No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

Only in the life of Jesus could humanity behold the wonderful character of the Father. While Jesus and the Father are two individual beings, they are one.

And we too can become the sons and daughters of God. But that's more than having a Father that takes care of us. It means taking on the very identity of the Father: grace and truth.

Without Jesus, this world may never have seen the Father.

Without my life, someone in this world may never see the Father.

Oh, to treat every encounter as such. . . .
