God's Riches At Christ's Expense - GRACE - Inspirational Sundays

Ahh what love for us. I don't deserve it. I can't even understand that there is a king who loves me. I'm rotten man. Sigh, but he does.  It says, if it was only me on earth, he would still die for me.


Sometimes on Christmas we unwrap the dreaded "indescribable gift." It is our politeness that keeps us from asking, What is it? What am I supposed to do with it? Or, Are you sure this is for me? On the other hand, each of us has probably received another kind of "indescribable gift" -- one that leaves us speechless with appreciation. Such a gift is one we never expected, one we think we don't deserve, and one that leaves us awestruck.

It's that second kind of indescribable gift that Paul tells the Corinthians about in 2 Corinthians 9:15 -- that gift being the grace of God in Jesus Christ. Some have described grace as "God's Riches At Christ's Expense." That's a good place to start in describing grace, but it's much harder to describe the free gift that God has given us. Who gives a gift of complete forgiveness to guilty sinners? Why would someone sacrifice Himself for the sake of those who might not even appreciate it? How is it possible that such love and forgiveness never ceases, even when our gratitude does? That's why it's called indescribable.

Do your best this Christmas to thank God for His indescribable gift -- and to extend that same gift to others.



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