Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.



“Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift.”
2 Corinthians 9:15 (NKJV)

Father, as I think about the gift of your Son to and for us it is truly overwhelming. That God who is greater than creation took to himself our likeness in flesh and blood. That he who was the glory of heaven in human infancy was laid in a feeding trough of wood and straw. That his life was one of sorrow and suffering. Rejected by his own people, ridiculed by gentiles, and crucified by a foreign hostile government. Literally dying alone on the cross for the sins of the world. “He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all--”  Romans 8:32 (NIV)   Such is this indescribable gift of God’s mercy and grace. Simply astounding!

It was the ultimate gift of infinite priority. So great is this gift that only God could give it. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son….”   John 3:16 NKJV)

It was the measureless gift of eternal dimension. “Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!” Romans 11:33 (NKJV)

It is the incomprehensible gift of knowledge beyond our full understanding. “… to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge.... Ephesians 3:19 (NKJV)

How can we not all say: ”Thank God for this gift too wonderful for words!” 2 Corinthians 9:15 (NLT)

Our God and Father we bow in humble gratitude and love at the matchless gift of your Son who is our salvation.  Amen.
