JESUS – THE MOST INDESCRIBABLE GIFT OF ALL TIMES – 2 Corinthians 9 15

Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift! (2 Corinthians 9:15)

As we enter the season when many people are focused on giving and receiving gifts, we need to tell our loved ones and friends about the greatest gift that has ever been given. It is indeed the most precious gift anyone could ever receive because of its eternal value.

This amazing gift of eternal life is offered to everyone, but tragically most people refuse it because they do not see their need for it. This heavenly gift from God is available free for the asking because of a love story written in blood on a cross 2,000 years ago. Thanks be to God for His indescribable and irrevocable gift of eternal life with the Savior (2 Corinthians 9:15; Romans 11:29).

This is a very precious gift because Jesus Christ, our great God and Savior made the gift possible when He offered Himself as a perfect sacrifice. Jesus “who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to His own advantage; rather, He made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness” (Philippians 2:6-7). As God’s perfect gift to humanity, He suffered once for sins, the just One for the unjust, that He might bring us to God (1 Peter 3:18). Let us therefore understand that the gift of salvation is found in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved (Acts 4:12).

It is an indescribable gift! How can it be that God would die for me? God’s amazing gift to us was made possible because divine justice was satisfied for all those who trust Christ alone as their sinless substitute. God made Him (Jesus Christ) who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him (2 Corinthians 5:21).

We need to understand that those who receive this indescribable gift of God’s love, mercy and grace will never suffer the eternal punishment in hell that they deserve.

However, God’s gift can only be received by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:8-9). It is given to people who confess their sins, recognize their hopeless condition, repent crying out to God for mercy (Luke 18:13); and finally place their trust in what Christ has done for them.

Eternal life is the free gift of God and can only be received by faith (Romans 6:23). Those who believe that it can be earned, merited or purchased must repent of such an insult to God as Peter said to Simon the sorcerer: “May your money perish with you, because you thought you could buy the gift of God with money! You have no part or share in this ministry, because your heart is not right before God. Repent of this wickedness and pray to the Lord in the hope that he may forgive you for having such a thought in your heart” (Acts 8:20-22).

The Lord Jesus came to seek and to save those who are lost (Luke 19:10). Before He ascended into heaven, He promised His disciples “but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8).

As we see, no one can receive the gift of eternal life until they know it is available and understand why they need to receive it. The One who purchased the gift of eternal life has given Christians the awesome responsibility and privilege to share the good news with the world!

This is why we share God’s gift of eternal life during this season and throughout the year.

The question we ask you is: “What is the greatest gift you have ever received?” Do you know?

As the world exchanges gifts that have no eternal value, let us announce the gift  that will be enjoyed throughout all eternity!

 “The awesome gift of eternal life with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ”

Wishes Christmas blessings to all our brother’s and sisters around the world!

We do not know when Jesus was born, because the Bible does not tell us, but we celebrate with joy this precious gift today and every day of our life, until Christ calls us home to be with Him for eternity.
