John 1: 16 - And of His fullness have all we received and grace for grace.
This verse tells us something amazing about the state of all those who have received Christ into their life as Lord and Saviour. We have not received a part of Christ but His fullness. John writes in his first chapter that Christ is both God and man.
Isaiah describes His fullness by His titles- Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Paul states, Christ is our Wisdom, Righteousness, Sanctification and Redemption.
With all we have in Christ, we can face life with confidence and joy.
