Scripture Reading: Luke 2:40

When Christ came into the world, He came as a newborn  babe. He developed through childhood as the obedient ward  of natural parents. "And the child grew, and waxed strong in  spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon  Him." It could not be otherwise! How could the Beloved One  possibly fulfill His mission, were it not for the grace of God  being upon Him? "For the law was given by Moses, but grace  and truth came by Jesus Christ" (John 1:17).

Paul writes to young Timothy, "Who [God] hath saved us,  and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works,  but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given  to us in Christ Jesus before the world began, but is now  manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who  hath abolished death, and hath brought, life and immortality  to light through the gospel" (II Timothy 1:9, 10). He saved us  according to His own purpose and grace; and that grace was  given us before the world began!

In his first letter to Timothy, Paul sums it up well: "The  grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and  love which is in Christ Jesus. This is a faithful saying, and  worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the  world to save sinners" (I Timothy 1:14, 15). The grace of  our Lord! "God so loved the world that He gave His only  begotten Son" (John 3:16a). See what God hath wrought:  "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but  according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of re-  generation, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; which He  shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour" (Titus 3:5,6).
