Indescribable Gift

“Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!” 2 Corinthians 9:15

God’s indescribable gift is not peace or joy, although His gift brings peace and joy. His gift is a person. His gift is Jesus Christ. When we have Jesus we have everything God wants to give us.

All that our hearts have ever desired, every need we face, every truth we seek, and every blessing we long for is found in Jesus Christ. There is no other person, no other relationship, no other provision, and no other source that God will use to meet our deepest needs.

All things are in Jesus Christ and we are complete in Him. He is the Fountain that quenches our thirst, the Bread that nourishes our souls, the Light that dispels our darkness, the Physician that heals our wounds, the Shepherd that guides our steps, the Counselor that gives us wisdom, the Word that establishes us in truth, the Faithful One that gives us security, the Vine that nourishes our spirits, the Dayspring that gives us hope, the Door that gives us access to the Father, and the Mighty God that rules our hearts.

What a love! What a Savior! What a gift! May our hearts be open to receive Him, may our faith be ready to trust Him, may our wills be surrendered to obey Him, may our feet and hands be committed to follow Him, may our faces be anointed to reflect Him, may our actions and attitudes honor Him, and may our voices be uplifted to praise Him.

    What a spirit moving message this morning! Having difficulty getting into the spirit of Christmas, the true spirit, as we’ve just suffered the loss of a very special family member, one we’ve watched deteriorate rapidly from a vicious and rare dementia. My husband’s older brother was so special to him, his best friend, and this is the first time I’ve watched my husband’s heart break. Today’s words helped so much. I wanted you to know.

    I love Christmas,is a great reminder of this precious gift that was given to us all,what a pity the world think is about the gift,the food the office party,the music..if the only knew, is about feeling the grace of the Lord being poured on our soul,ambrazing with joy everything around us,singing Psalms and declaring that jesus our Savior is comming for His church..for His childrens, is not about the christmas tree, or the lights..is all about JESUS CHRIST..BLESSED CHRISTMAS TO ALL.

    Undescribable gift is the best Christmas message I have heard. My heart is crying because everyone in the world does not know this, and most of those who are actually Christians also don’t know it. Thank you for putting in words what I have believed, but have not been able to articulate, my whole life. I am 67 years old.
