…a Bible student's notes…

No Description Necessary…just enjoy giving it away….

“Thanks be to God for His unspeakable gift.”

If you remain in the context of these chapters of 2 Corinthians, what is God’s unspeakable gift?  Every commentator in my e-sword program says the gift is Christ.  But, we are learning to stay in context, aren’t we?  And, the preceding verse has the phrase, “the exceeding grace of God in you.”  The gift here is the generous grace (power) of giving.  Do you have it?  Verse 8 says that “God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work.”  Do you allow God to give you this liberality?

This grace of generosity is also described as indescribable – or “unspeakable” in KJV.    The Concordant Literal Version says this:   2Co 9:15 Now thanks be to God for His indescribable gratuity!  And, the word “grace” in verse 14 is the same word as “thanks” beginning verse 15.  The praise, power, and thanksgiving all belong to God for His enablement of participation in His grace.  What a blessed privilege!  Beyond descriptive words in the participants!  They are not capable of a full explanation.

(Rom 11:33) O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

(Eph 3:8) Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;

(Jas 1:17) Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

(Eph 3:20) Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

(Rom 11:33) O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

(1Pet 1:8) Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
