Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.
2 Corinthians 9:15
The Greatest Gift of All Time
Unspeakable: Exceeding the power of speech; unutterable; inexpressible; indescribable.
What IS that UNSPEAKABLE gift from God? What is that gift that is so magnificent that there are truly not words to describe it?
The work of salvation through Jesus Christ in the heart and soul of man is that unspeakable gift!
To think, when a man, woman, boy or girl repents of their sins with a broken and contrite spirit, they are forgiven of all their sins AND made a new creature!
2 Corinthians 5:17: “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
EVERYTHING changes when we leave the life of sin which the bible calls “the broad way” and start walking with God on the narrow or holy way.
It is an instantaneous change – it is being transformed from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light!
All of the old life and its sinful ways are gone! We now walk in newness of life.
The shepherds rejoiced when they saw the star that indicated the birth of the Messiah.
Matthew 2:1 - 2: “Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.”
Matthew 2:9 - 10: “When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.”
1 Peter 2:9: “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:”
Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
His gift to us, when we let Him live and rule in our hearts and lives, is peace, joy, a holy life here and an eternal reward!
Romans 14:17: “For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.”
Romans 15:13: “Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.”
God IS a God of hope and he alone can make the difference in a life that is unfulfilling and void of peace and joy.
James 1:17 “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”
God has an unspeakable gift for you – have you received it?
It’s A Wonderful Life!
