Teaching the Word for Growth — Reaching the World for Christ

Pastor’s Newsletter Article

This is the latest of the articles Pastor Richert writes for the monthly church newsletter.

Full of grace

In John’s version of the Christmas story, he writes, “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth” (1:14). The Word, Jesus, existed as the second person of the Trinity from all eternity. He chose to enter this world as a human being and dwell among us sinful people. That was the ultimate demonstration of grace.

The infinite God limited Himself to a tiny human baby. The eternal God confined Himself to time. The invisible God became visible. The all-powerful Creator became a totally dependent creature. Why did Jesus do this? He did this so that He could save us from the judgment we deserve for our sin. He was born to die. That is grace.

No wonder John says that Jesus was “full of grace.” Grace flowed out of Jesus from His birth until His return to heaven. He graciously sought the best for every person He encountered. That ultimately meant that He gave His life to be the Savior of mankind.

Thank you, Jesus.
