What would you say is the best-known verse in all of the Bible?
I think Genesis 1:1 and Romans 3:23 and 6:23 and 8:38-39 would be near the top of that list which, no doubt, would be topped with John 3:16.
While not nearly so famous, another of my favorites is John 1:16.
We’re all very familiar with the phrase “going above and beyond”, but when it comes to the Lord Jesus Christ I find that He is continually going above and beyond and beyond and beyond and beyond.
Or as John 1:16 puts it: “For of His fulness we have all received, and GRACE UPON GRACE” (upon grace upon grace upon grace).
So true. Thank You, Lord! For being beyond so very good to us. We don’t deserve that abundance of grace, and You don’t deserve the DEARTH of gratitude with which we often reciprocate: that should be as continual as Your goodness and grace toward us, toward me… “ALWAYS giving thanks for all things” (Ephesians 5:20). Thanks for helping me become more aware of this and do much better than before, and grant that I would do far better still going forward. You are worthy of nothing less than everything, my all.
