John 1:16 ¶ And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace.
During the height of the revival in the 1990’s I played this David Ruis song, ‘There Must Be More’, incessantly. It fit where I was in my journey, I had tasted much of what the Lord offers, I just knew there was more proceeding from His overflowing fountain. I knew there was more. I have been thinking all of this past week about the ‘more’ of God. I seemed to be stuck on fullness. Out of the blue, I read Spurgeon’s daily devotion and it was like striking gold. Here is a portion of that devotion, drink of this cup of the Lord’s fullness.
“These words tell us that there is a fulness in Christ. There is a fulness of essential Deity, for in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead. There is a fulness of perfect manhood, for in him, bodily, that Godhead was revealed. There is a fulness of atoning efficacy in his blood, for the blood of Jesus Christ, his Son, cleanseth us from all sin. There is a fulness of justifying righteousness in his life, for there is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus. There is a fulness of divine prevalence in his plea, for He is able to save to the uttermost them that come unto God by him; seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. There is a fulness of victory in his death, for through death he destroyed him that had the power of death, that is the devil. There is a fulness of efficacy in his resurrection from the dead, for by it we are begotten again unto a lively hope. There is a fulness of triumph in his ascension, for when he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and received gifts for men. There is a fulness of blessings of every sort and shape; a fulness of grace to pardon, of grace to regenerate, of grace to sanctify, of grace to preserve, and of grace to perfect. There is a fulness at all times; a fulness of comfort in affliction; a fulness of guidance in prosperity. A fulness of every divine attribute, of wisdom, of power, of love; a fulness which it were impossible to survey, much less to explore.”
Maybe you feel like you are running on empty today, take time to fill up your tank. Dwell on the fullness of God given to us in Christ. Bask in it, drink it, soak in it. There is more than we ever thought possible pouring down from heaven, yes there is grace upon grace upon grace…
