“And of his fulness have all we received.” — John 1:16
Come, believer, and get all thy need supplied; ask largely, and thou shalt receive largely, for this “fullness” is inexhaustible, and is treasured up where all the needy may reach it, even in Jesus, Immanuel—God with us.
One of the most freeing thoughts and joyful truths of the Bible is that Christ is ours and He is all we need in every way. As we walk in this life we are guaranteed to be conformed to the image of Christ and that guarantee is based in the perfect righteousness of Christ and His perfect propitiation on the cross.
“But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.” — Luke 2:19
Meditate upon what you read: stop not at the surface; dive into the depths.
This is such a needed call for us to be men and woman of the word of God. Apathy is something that plagues us all, and is so dishonoring to the Lord. How should we be apathetic to the great character of the Lord. Let us spend time in God’s word as to raise our affections to the place they ought to be. As Piper says, it is the kindling for the fire!
