Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift! (2 Corinthians 9:15)
The grace of God that brings salvation is not earned nor do its recipients purchase it. It is a gift, and the gift of God is irrevocable.(1) If they were they would not be gifts, they would be loans. We are not saved on credit. We have been redeemed; and the payment was made in full. There are no foreclosures in God’s Kingdom. Therefore here is no greater thing for us to do than to be thankful for His indescribable gift. We are thankful when we sing the praises of Him. We are thankful when we share His goodness and mercy with others. We are thankful when we are filled with the joy of His presence. We demonstrate our thankfulness by walking in obedience to His Word and leading of His Spirit. There is no room for doubts, fears or worldly sorrows. When these things haunt you, think about His goodness, grace and mercy. Think about His promises, love and kindness. Think about His indescribable gift.
