Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!
2 Corinthians 9:15 (NASB)
Thoughts on Today’s Verse
A gift for which payment must be made is not a gift – it is a purchase; an acquisition – it had been paid for – bought with a price. A gift is something that is given freely – given without any strings attached, otherwise it cannot be called a gift. Christ Jesus was God’s free gift of grace to the every member of the human race – Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God was His free, indescribable, inestimable gift of grace and He was given to every man and woman – without any strings attached.
A gift that is not accepted is still a gift – God’s free, indescribable, inestimable gift of grace was given freely to every man and woman – without any strings attached. Some accept this unspeakably precious gift and others reject it – but the gift of God to humanity, which is too wonderful for words – was nonetheless given to ALL.
Simply accepting this unspeakably precious gift from God – i.e. believing on the Lord Jesus Christ – the eternal Son of God…. the only begotten Son of God, Who is His indescribable gift, causes a whole host of other amazing things to be showered without limit upon the blessed recipient. Every other good thing that pertains to spiritual life – i.e. eternal life; eternal love; eternal hope; eternal joy; eternal peace; eternal prosperity and eternal grace is also given. The moment God’s gift of grace is accepted, He opens the floodgates of the riches of His grace over the blessed beneficiary.
Simply rejecting this unspeakably precious gift from God – i.e. refusing to accept and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ – the only begotten Son of God, Who is God’s indescribable gift, results in everlasting condemnation – i.e. spiritual death – i.e. eternal separation from God. While-ever there is life the unspeakably precious gift from God is still available to whosever will accept God’s indescribable gift – His only begotten Son.
Thanks be to God for His indescribable and unspeakably precious gift!
Loving heavenly Father – thank You for the unspeakably precious gift of Your dear Son, Jesus Christ – Who has been freely given to me and to all who will sill simply believe on His name. Father the gift of Your only begotten Son is beyond all expression, beyond all measure and beyond all bounds. I fall on my face and worship You for Your unspeakably precious gift to me – in JESUS name I pray – Amen
