Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift! -2 Corinthians 9:15 NKJV
God's indescribable gift is not peace or joy, although His indescribable gift brings peace and joy. His gift is a person. His gift is Jesus Christ. When we have Jesus, we have everything.
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.
His glory outshines the sun. No other counsel can replace His wisdom, and nothing overshadows His greatness. And yet Jesus gave Himself as a ransom for all. In Him we see all that God wants to reveal to us, we walk in all that God has prepared for us, we experience all that God has planned for us, we receive all that God desires to give to us.
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 be righteous to honor Him, and may our voices be uplifted to praise Him—now and forever.
