April 13, 2021 - Grace for Grace

"Even the Savior "received not of the fulness at the first but received grace for grace and he received not of the fulness but continued from grace to grace until he received a fulness." And with His help, Joseph's story reminds us, we too can "receive grace for grace."

Rachel Cope, "Know Brother Joseph", Deseret Book 2021


It's difficult for me to fathom that the Savior Himself received grace for grace, line upon line, but still be the only perfect person. Did He experience the foibles of mortality while still being perfect? What exactly did He go through? What does grace for grace mean exactly?


Regardless of what it means, I know it doesn't have any bearing on my level of love, respect, and trust for Him. It actually brings me comfort to know He increased in His fulness until He reached His ultimate level of perfection.


Granted, I'm a ways behind His level, but it's comforting to know that, one day far in the future, I will reach my ultimate level.


It doesn't matter where on the path I am as long as I'm "increasing" in wisdom, and stature, and in favor with God and man (and woman).
