And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
When we think about Jesus, we have to do so with infinite in mind. The psalmist stated: “Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable” (Ps. 145:3). Not only is His greatness unsearchable, everything about Him is past finding out. That’s why eternity is insufficient to communicate and reveal His fullness.
Our understanding has its own point of reference, primarily based on our experiences. When it comes to Jesus, though, we should never place any restriction on who He is, especially regarding the fullness and freeness of His grace. It’s infinitely boundless, to use an appropriate redundancy. That means that no one is beyond His saving reach.
Imagine all the grace He has continuously bestowed on His children, from Adam and Eve until now. Not even considering the grace that He will bestow on them from this time forth and forevermore. Such fullness is incomprehensible. To make it more personal, what about the effectual grace He has bestowed on you?
Since our thoughts of Him are always too low of who He is, we should ask the Father to increasingly open our eyes in order to behold the grace of His Son. There can only be one response: complete and utter astonishment.
