Mended and Whole

John 1:16-17  And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace.  For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.

Father, You gave us your laws as guidelines to follow to keep us safe, not only as we live our daily lives, but also as we think with our minds and deal with our hearts.  But then Jesus......coming with Your grace that shouts not only of Your character but also Your desire to lavish us with all that You are.  And, as if that weren't enough, You sent Him in truth to teach us who You are, what You are like, and to physically present among us so that those encountered would share their experiences with the world so that Your honor and glory would be carried out to the end of the age.  Help us to represent You well and accurately, in grace and truth, with the light of Jesus shining through the broken vessels we are that You are mending and making whole again.
