And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:14)
Notice that the presence of the Lord Jesus manifesting His glory was the presence of “grace and truth.” These two go hand in hand; that is, you can’t have one without the other. Jesus, the only begotten of the Father, is full of grace. Grace, which brings liberation and salvation, always saves and elevates people. If you want the sweetness and sanctifying power of God to operate, then you must invite the Lord Jesus into your life. His grace will save you, and then His truth will sanctify you.
Living in the In-Between Times
As people following Christ, we all experience stop and go, arrival and departure, life and death. We know about living in between pivotal moments. It’s easy to believe that God is not at work in the ordinary. But He is! Through my book Living in the In-Between Times, you’ll discover how God speaks to you, how you can respond, and the significance of decisive commitment to the will of God.
