His Inexpressible Gift

In 2 Cor 9:15, Paul writes that God has given us an inexpressible gift.  This gift is His Son Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for our sins.  Paul says that we should give thanks to God for this gift.  Thanksgiving is a time for a person to give thanks for the many blessings that they have received.  For the Christian this gift is eternal and abundant life through Jesus Christ.  All the benefits of heaven have been given to us through Jesus Christ.  Before we were Christians we were away from God.  We were His enemies.  We did not care for Him or want Him.  But through our acceptance of Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior all that changed.  In that moment of salvation we changed addresses and hearts.  We became citizens of heaven and followers of Jesus Christ.  We went from wanting our will to following His will.  Jesus Christ became our priority instead of our will.  I love salvation because in a moment of time a sinner becomes a saint.  In that moment we become new creatures in Christ.  As Paul said in 2 Cor 5:17, the old has pass away and all things are becoming new.  This is a very exciting process.  As we approach the Thanksgiving season.  Walk in praise, worship and thankfulness.  The Lord has given us an inexpressible gift.  Receive it with thanksgiving and gratefulness.  You could do nothing to earn it.  So enjoy all its benefits and live for Him today.  Have an attitude of gratitude.
