 The Unspeakable Gift

Pastor David Beck
Sedalia, Missouri

Thanks be to God for His unspeakable (indescribable) gift, Jesus. How marvelous is His abundant Grace. Truly, we are accepted in the Beloved, and nothing can pluck us from our Father’s hand. As I was reading in Romans 5, the following portion was especially speaking to me.

“Therefore as by the offense of one judgement came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.” Romans 5:18-19

I wrote this short poem afterward:


Except for ONE, we would have no hope,

All men hanging in the noose of sin’s rope.

Except for ONE none could answer our cry;

All helpless, doomed, and condemned to die.

Except for ONE, none be righteous, ‘tis true.

But this ONE came to answer for me and for you!

And so by giving his only Son,

God offers Salvation to everyone.

The Lord Jesus Christ accomplished this feat;

The ONE who made our Redemption complete!

The coming of Jesus for his Bride is surely so very soon! And for those who apprehend that glorious truth, Redemption will be supremely complete.
