His Indescribable Gift! (2 Corinthians 9:5)

18 Jul

Friends: If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know that my friend Frank (in New Jersey) and I have been doing an email Bible study for over a year. We read the same chapter every day for a week — and then send a brief email of encouragement to each other. We’ve completed most of the epistles of the New Testament — and it’s been a great discipline for both of us.

Let’s further notice some significant truths in chapter ten:

His Indescribable Gift! (2 Corinthians 9:5)

I. The Source of That Gift: God Himself!

>>> No one can out-give God!

II. The Description of That Gift: Indescribable!

>>> The candy bar “Almond Joy” was marketed as “indescribably delicious!” On this vintage box we read: “When they ask for Almond Joy and you’re out of stock, There go your profits! Plunk! Like a rock!”

III. The Response to That Gift: Giving Thanks!

Today’s Challenge: What did God give? He gave Himself! Pastor John Piper makes the point (in his book God Is the Gospel) that when you trusted Christ, you got GOD! Live today as someone who has been gifted — by God Himself!
