John 1:16

From the fullness of his grace we have received one blessing after another,

In the Greek it is grace upon grace that we have received from his fullness. Jesus has a never-ending supply of unmerited favor. We see the echo in the question, "How many times shall I forgive my brother?" Until seven times". "Until seventy times seven!" This does not mean 490 times, for love keeps no record of wrongs. There is an unlimited supply of grace. Jesus is full of it; grace is overflowing. Past sins, present sins, future sins; all are forgiven; paid for by Christ's death on the cross; signed off on by the resurrection.
