Extravagant Abundance

In the beginning, before all time, 
was the Word—Christ—
and the Word was with God
and the Word was God Himself.
He was present originally with God.

For out of His abundance
we have all received
one grace after another and
spiritual blessing upon spiritual blessing
and even favor upon favor and
gift heaped upon gift.
The Law was given through Moses, 
but grace—
undeserved favor and spiritual blessing—
and truth came through Jesus Christ.
John 1:1,2,16
In the beginning, before all time,
Christ was with His Father.
There was nothing Father needed
that was outside of Him.
But He chose to create man in Their image
and sent His Son into the world
as light and life,
a representation of Himself.

He sent Him with grace upon grace,
spiritual blessing upon spiritual blessing,
favor upon favor,
and gift heaped upon gift.
Extravagant abundance.

Jesus, You are everything I need
and more than I can ask for.
I have to know You at this level.
 All that You have is mine.
And I want it all.
You tabernacle with me that I might
never be needy again.
Out of Your abundance,
I have already received.
May I know You to the level
that Your extravagant abundance
defines my life.
