“Out of His fullness we receive, and grace for grace, — like wave upon wave.”
Ephesians 1: 22, 23 ~ “And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.”
2:7-9 ~ “…so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.”
3:17-19 ~…”so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith – that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowlege, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”
4:7 ~ “But grace was given to each of us according to the measure of Christ’s gift.”
Colossians 1:19,20 ~ For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.”
2:9,10 ~ “For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority.”
Hebrews 4:16 ~ “Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
Today I am very thankful for His fullness, that He is in me, and for the grace I receive from Him like wave upon wave…
