Jesus was unique among God's people when He came on the scene. Up to then the focus had entirely been upon the truth of the Law. Grace was only mentioned in passing as something that was rarely found. But when Jesus arrived, He was full of both grace and truth. And that mix of both is exactly what we all desperately needed. As wonderful as it is, truth (the Law) without grace ultimately doesn't work for us because our flesh is powerless to keep the Law. At the same time, grace without truth doesn’t work either because it feeds the flesh instead of our spirits. We need both grace and truth to be healthy and grow into maturity. Possessing that mix of both wasn't generally available to us before Jesus. But now, everything you need for an abundant, happy, peaceful life is waiting for you in Jesus. That same fullness of grace and truth is yours now too in Christ. You can make a decision today to receive everything Jesus purchased on your behalf. Just renew your mind to learn about it all. As you do, you will transform wondrously as your soul begins to line up with what Jesus already accomplished in your spirit.
The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, the glory as the only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth.— John 1:14 (MEV)
