THE UNSPEAKABLE GIFT
“Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift” II Cor. 9:15. Unspeakable means, “beyond description.” There are no human words to adequately describe it. The value of it far surpasses any known earthly treasure, so there is nothing with which to compare it. Yet, it is God’s free gift to all of us.
“He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” Rom. 8:32. God gave His all when He gave His Son for us all (“for God so loved the world He gave His only begotten Son”) to purchase our freedom from sin, our salvation. But the Son, who died in our place, also gave His all. Through that gift, God has freely given to all who will receive it, all things. Nothing that God has provided for us is withheld from us except through unbelief. Can we really comprehend the immensity of that gift?
How can we through our feeble attempts at good works ever hope to add anything to an incalculable gift such as that? Why not just receive it by faith and enjoy the fullness of the riches of His grace? “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:” Eph. 2:8.
Thanks be to God for sending us His unspeakable gift of Love –
wrapped in the package of His dear Son.
Special delivered by His Holy Dove.
‘Tis a rare and unusual present imported from Heaven above,
a gift that keeps giving and giving-
The unspeakable gift of God’s Love.
