Indeed, we have all received grace after grace from His fullness, for the law was given through Moses, grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God. The One and Only Son – the One who is at the Father’s side – He has revealed Him. John 1:16-18 HCSB
My son owns a 1966 red Mustang car. It is beautiful and whenever we drive it we always receive comments like, “Nice car!” His car may be rare, but it is not unique. There are thousands of older Mustang cars available even though they are no longer produced. There are some things that are unique and one of a kind. Every person’s DNA is unique. Every snowflake is unique. Every person’s fingerprint is unique. The rings on a tree are unique.
These verses tell us that Jesus is the One and Only Son of God. The emphasis is on the uniqueness of Jesus. There is only One Son. Jesus is a one-of-a-kind. There is no one like Him. He enjoys a special and unique relationship with God, the Father. Even though as believers we are children of God, we are not like Jesus. He is the perfect Lamb of God that never sinned. He alone died on the cross so our sins could be forgiven and God could accept us as one of His children.
Challenge: Thank God that you are unique and that He loves you for who you are. God made you unique with special skills and abilities. Use your unique talents to serve the Lord. Thank God for the grace and blessing you have received from Him.
