Exodus 34:4-35; Psalms 85:1-86:17; Acts 20:17-38

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

Paul uses the Greek word “anekdiegetos” in this verse, to refer to God’s “indescribable” gift of His sinless Son. This word conveys the idea that the nature of this gift cannot be fully expounded. It is beyond our comprehension! The fact that this Greek word only occurs here in the New Testament is significant. It cannot be compared to any other Scriptural usage. As we contemplate the vast worth of Christ from God’s perspective we are left dumbfounded, but not speechless. Let us praise God for His incomprehensible love! —W. A. H.

‘Tis mystery all! The Immortal dies!
Who can explore His strange design?
In vain the firstborn seraph tries,
To sound the depths of love divine! —Charles Wesley
