Day 2 – Jesus Revealed to Us By God the Father. March 7, 2019
Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known. John 1:16-18
God the Father desired to reveal Himself to us through the Son, Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God, because sinful man cannot be in the presence of a Holy God and live. So mankind was given the grace of the law, through Moses, in order to have communion with the Holy One. And in place of that “grace already given” we were given grace and truth through Jesus Christ. Who, being God Himself, leads us into closest relationship with the Father. God the Father revealed Jesus to us so that we might know Him.
Thank You, Almighty Father for revealing Yourself to me through Your Son, Jesus Christ. Thank You for grace upon grace, for Your all surpassing goodness. Thank You for taking on human flesh so that I would not perish in Your presence but now see You as You truly are. Thank You for the Cross, and thank You for the hope I now have in You. Amen.
