The fullness of His grace

The fullness of His grace
(Octavius Winslow, “From Grace to Glory” 1864)

“For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.”
John 1:16

Will you hesitate, then, child of God to sink your emptiness in this fullness; to drink abundantly from this supply; to go to Jesus . . .

  • with every sin, the greatest;
  • with every temptation, the strongest;
  • with every need, the deepest;
  • with every trial, the severest;
  • with your mental despondency, your lowest spiritual frame yes, exactly as you are–and receive from Christ’s boundless grace–grace to help you in the time of need? Hesitate not!

Every drop of Christ’s fullness of grace is yours!
And you have . . .
  • not a sin this grace cannot cancel,
  • not a corruption it cannot subdue,
  • not a trial it cannot sustain,
  • not a burden it cannot enable you to bear.

Yes, the Lord will give grace! He will give us grace for every position in which His providence places us. He will give sustaining grace under every trial He sends us. He will give preserving grace in every path of peril along which He leads us. He will give comforting grace in every afflictive dispensation by which He seeks to promote our holiness here, and so to advance our fitness for glory hereafter.

There is no stintiness, no limit in the Triune God. He has given you grace for past exigencies, and He is prepared to give you more grace for present ones!

“For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.”

John 1:16
