Dwell In His Grace

18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, 19 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. ~ Luke 4:18-19

Jesus said that the Holy Spirit was upon Him and that God the Father had anointed Him to preach the Good News of salvation. To release the captives and heal the sick, to bring freedom to the oppressed, and to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor.

Seems to me that we are living in that time, the time of the LORD’s favor. Why? Because this is the time when anyone can bow before the LORD, call on His name, and be saved. Before the giving of the Holy Spirit, that didn’t happen. That had not yet been an option for all of mankind.

Now, because of the fullness of Jesus, or the completeness of Jesus, we have received favor upon favor, and grace upon grace, to the point where we can do all things through Christ who gives us His favor, or His grace.

In other words, His completeness, or His fullness, which is His strength, becomes our strength, and we are made complete in Him as long as we are in Him, and He is in us. Nothing is impossible for us.

There is no lack in Jesus. There is no emptiness in Jesus. There is no absence of anything good in Jesus. There is no bareness of any kind in Jesus. Why? Because Jesus is the fullness of God, made complete through His obedience as a man, obedience even unto death. That fullness or completeness is given or granted to us by Jesus when He said, “Lo, I’m with you always.” That was not just for the first century Church, but for us as well.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Dwell In His Grace.
