Passage ~ “And the Word [the Living Word—Jesus Christ] became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14).
Significance ~ The classic Biblical definition of grace is “unmerited favor.” Others have stated it as “getting that which you don’t deserve.” I would add that it is “receiving good that you don’t deserve” (as opposed to mercy which I define as “not receiving something bad which you deserve”). One acrostic which has been used to define grace is “God’s Riches At Christ’s Expense.”
the key question: “Who do you say that I am?” (Matthew 16:15). This is the most important question you will ever answer. If you do not answer it, or answer it incorrectly, you have made the biggest mistake anyone can make!
