Welcome, friends, to Temple Baptist Church!
THANKS FOR THE GREATEST GIFT
"Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift." (II Corinthians 9:15)
We who have known and sought to follow the Lord for the many years have received many many blessings for which to that Him. "Blessed be the Lord who daily loadeth us with benefits" (Psalm 68:19), we can pray again and again.
But there is one blessing which is so great that it cannot even be put into words - it is unspeakable! That gift is so great that when we try to comprehend it, the sense of awe and gratitude becomes so overwhelming (or at least should become so overwhelming) that our joy is also unspeakable--indescribable! That gift, of course, is the gift of the Lord Jesus Christ as our Redeemer and Savior. "Whom having not seen, ye love, in whom, though now ye see him not...ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory" (I Peter 1:8)
To think that the mighty Creator, God the Son, would not only humble Himself to become His own creature, man, but then also suffer the unimaginable agony of the cross and separation from God the Father in order to deliver us from the just penalty of sin! This act speaks of such love and grace that all we can do is whisper softly, "Thank you, Lord, for this unspeakable gift." and then shout it over and over again in our hearts wherever we go, and share its unspeakable joy and blessing with whomever will listen to its message. "The LORD hath done great things for us, whereof we are glad" (Psalm 126:3). Thank you, Lord!
Thank you for your time today, my friend, and do plan to visit with us soon at Temple Baptist Church. It would be a joy and an honor to have you in service. May God bless you! Have a Blessed Christmas Season!
