“Thanks be to God for His inexpressible gift!” (2 Corinthians 9:15)
What a simple, yet profound statement is made by the Apostle Paul in
his letter to the Corinthians. He is rendering thanks to God, but
he uses the term “inexpressible gift”. What is this inexpressible
gift. Each year, my family is in the habit of giving gifts for
birthdays and for Christmas because we want to show value for the
person to whom we are giving gifts. Accompanying the gifts are
the usual thank you’s.
But I don’t think any of us have ever used the term “inexpressible”
when giving thanks for our gifts. That is rightly so because
there is only one gift that is truly inexpressible. All of us
were born with a sin nature. That means that we were born with a
natural bent toward some sin or sins. For some it is a bent
toward lying, for others it is stealing, for others it may be
alcoholism or drugs, for others it may be homosexuality, for others a
sexual relationship outside of marriage, for others it may be a strong
desire to have what someone else has, but all of us have a natural bent
to do something that is not right and God calls that sin.
Due to the justice of God, he couldn’t just look the other way and
forgive or pretend that we had not sinned. Our sins had to be
paid for and that’s where Jesus Christ comes into the picture.
God sent his One and Only Son, Jesus Christ to pay the penalty for our
sins. The value of God’s Son was inexpressible. He was and
is God who became flesh and lived among us humans so that he could
fully understand what temptations are because he faced them, yet
He paid the price not just for one person’s sins but for all of those
who would place their personal faith and trust in him. This
demonstrates just how valuable the life and death of Jesus Christ was
and is to God the Father. As we reflect upon the “inexpressible
gift” that God has bestowed upon us, let us continue to give thanks to
God for the gift that we did not earn or merit, but that God has
graciously given us!
