Indescribable!

2 Corinthians 9:15 “Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift.” (NIV)

How do you describe the indescribable? How can you tell someone about an indescribable gift? How do you describe to someone the gift that God has given us? First let’s realize something. If it is truly indescribable you cannot describe it. Paul is telling us that in this scripture. We cannot explain what it is. The Bible in words try to describe him. Words cannot describe his glory. Words will never-ever amount to the glory of Jesus. We will never ever be able to speak enough of his glory. God gave us something in that manger that is truly indescribable.

On Good Morning America one morning around Christmas they were sharing about indescribable gifts. With an $80,000 you can put a down payment on a Jaguar car. The rest of the bill will come later around $575,000.00. Another one is a $100,00 toilet seat. It is gold and diamonds. $10,000.00 for car wax. I guess if you pay over $600,000 for a car you can afford that kind of wax. If you really want to spoil your baby how about a $10,000 pacifier.

Have you ever received a gift that was indescribable? NO! You can describe gifts given to you. The color, the size, and how it was given. Advertisers will go to all lengths to describe their product to you. But how in this world will you begin to describe the love of Jesus? How we even begin to tell of God’ love?

A wonderful preacher by the name of S.M. Lockridge pastored Calvary Baptist Church in San Diego, CA. talked about our King. When I was doing my homework for this sermon his sermon kept coming back to me. He described our Lord about as good as it is going to get. He notes blew me away. I would like to share with you tonight what Pastor Lockridge spoke of when talking about our gift. The gift from God.

Once at a church convention they had two featured speakers. One was a professor from a renowned seminary. The other was an old country preacher who been in the ministry for 50 years. The professor was to speak first and he spoke a great lecture about Christ being a Shepard to his flock. His lecture was spoken perfectly. The lecture was backed by theological thinking of the day. He was well educated on the Gospel of Christ. He delivered it perfectly. Then the old preacher took his turn and as only God would have it he too felt led to speak about Jesus leading his flock. Except he fumbled his words with country twang and southern accents. When the old preacher was through there was not a dry eye in the house. The professor was puzzled. Why did the “country preacher” move them to tears when his was spoken so much better? So he asked the preacher why? The preacher looked at him and said” You spoke about the Shepard, but son I know the Shepard.”
