Jan | 15 | The use of holy cutlery


The use of holy cutlery

John 1:16
And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. NKJV

The Gospel writer John, turn’s us now to Christ’s fullness, that is, to Christ’s copious cornucopia; His abundant horn of plenty; His full to the brim and ever dribbling over wine skin of finer double vintage; His mountainously full, rolling over the edge basket of ever-morning fresh breads. The earth is the Lord and the fullness thereof, and Christ is fat with that same full goodness of God and full way above and beyond whatever we can imagine besides, but in particular, His is the fullness of grace and truth which we have received as it says in the text here, blessing upon blessing.

This fullness has been legally given to us. It is as though Christ has willingly gone to court to get God the Father, the great judge of all men, to legally make over to us all that piled high undeserving abundance upon unmerited abundance. Grace upon grace if you will, and this ever piling grace and truth, drawn from the full coffers of the Christ, has been repeatedly thrust, even poured upon us. It is as if God the Holy Spirit has taken a wheelbarrow of the fullness of Christ’s golden grace and truth and dumped it at our door, only to then go back for another full wheelbarrow of the same, and then again and again and again pile up this same bever ending fullness of His, even at our very feet.

We have through the atonement received grace; total grace; all covering grace; enabling grace; preserving grace; heaven entering grace; and reward granting grace. We the church, have through the ministry of the Holy Spirit moving in anointed and upon appointed men, received even the very word of God, the truth, the Bible and in having this thrust upon us, we ourselves in turn have become the pillar and foundation of the truth of God on earth.

If then dear friend, God has piled layer upon deliciously overlapping layer of grace and truth from His ever fat and never emptying fullness, why then are we so often paupers of ignorance, burdened down with the duties of religion? Has Christ truly set us free and if so, are we truly free indeed?

It seems to me that grace needs to be sucked on and the truth we have in our 66 books needs to be eaten. After all, any man can starve by just looking at a horn of plenty. It’s only the man with a dessert spoon that shall live with smiling delight. Have you got your dessert spoon? Are you using it?

Listen:- ut God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:4-7NKJV

Pray: -  Lord Jesus, help us to experientially eat up your imparted goodness toward us. Amen and let it be so.
