“Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!”
(2 Corinthians 9:15 (NIV))
Short, sweet and to the point!
This passage gives us a very concise reason why we should praise God.
Another translation states it as follows.
Thank God for his Son—a gift too wonderful for words!
(2 Corinthians 9:15 (NLT))
Either way you translate the original words, it boils down to a very definable and unwavering declaration.
Thank God for Jesus!
Even if you have nothing else in this world to be thankful for, your salvation was purchased by Jesus when He died on that cross to pay the price for your sins.
Even if you have everything in the world, your salvation was purchased by Jesus when He died on that cross to pay the price for your sins.
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
(Romans 3:23 (NIV))
The amazing gift that Jesus willingly gave is readily available to any and all who will simply receive. No matter your status in the world, no matter your financial resources, no matter how sinful, Jesus paid the price that brings the only way to redemption from our sins.
There is no greater gift!
