Beyond The Scope Of Human Language

Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift. 2 Corinthians 9:15

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: Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. 1 Peter 1:8,9

His unspeakable gift causes me to rejoice with joy unspeakable. Both the gift and the joy no tongue can truly tell. No master of words can expound the greatness of the gift or the heights of the joy. It is beyond the scope of human language and expression.

When all effort has been exhausted and our tongues fall silent and our pens run dry we will realize the inadequacy of words to describe the glory of the gift and the exuberance of the joy! In hushed silence our hearts will overflow with gratitude for the grace of God in sending his only Son to die in the place and stead of sinners, to die for me.

At that moment all other blessings will evaporate into nothingness and our whole being will know an unspeakable joy that is rooted only in his unspeakable gift. In that moment of silence in the secret place of our heart we will feel His presence and know that we know him and the fullness of our heart will be reduced to two simple words: THANK YOU!
