“Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!” 2 Corinthians 9:15
God’s indescribable gift is not peace or joy, although His gift brings peace and joy. His gift is a person. His gift is Jesus Christ. When we have Jesus we have everything God wants to give us.
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.
All things are in Jesus Christ and we are complete in Him. He is the Fountain that quenches our thirst, the Bread that nourishes our souls, the Light that dispels our darkness, the Physician that heals our wounds, the Shepherd that guides our steps, the Counselor that gives us wisdom, the Word that establishes us in truth, the Faithful One that gives us security, the Vine that nourishes our spirits, the Dayspring that gives us hope, the Door that gives us access to the Father, and the Mighty God that rules our hearts.
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 honor Him, and may our voices be uplifted to praise Him.
During the month of December, we will once again be bringing a special focus upon the life and ministry of Jesus, the Lamb of God and heaven’s Indescribable Gift to us. This post, by Roy Lessin, first appeared on Meet Me In The Meadow in December 2012.
