He is the Unspeakable Gift
Several years ago my husband drove an old white Grand Am. It was a very faithful car for us. We were going to keep it until the wheels fell off. Oh, and this was cool, the driver’s side window was stuck, so we would order in the drive thru with the door open. We had no shame!
Seven years ago, for my husband’s birthday, I decided I was going to do something for him that would make him almost speechless. I had a plan! I was going to buy him a Gamecock garnet 2006 Toyota Tacoma without him knowing, and surprise him. I remember driving up in the driveway of my parents’ beach house in it. He said, “Megan??? Whose is that???” I told him it was his, and let me just say, I succeeded! He was pretty speechless, and it was very surreal to him. He kept asking if I was serious. I loved this moment so much. It felt so good to make someone I love feel so special.
2 Corinthians 9:15 reads, “Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.” Jesus is referred to here as God’s Unspeakable Gift to us. Jesus is the Unspeakable Gift because there are no words to describe Him. He is too awesome for words. Some versions even say He’s the Indescribable Gift. God wanted to show us just how loved we are, so He sent Jesus.
We should receive an even greater excitement about God’s gift to us than any other gift this Christmas. We wouldn’t even be anticipating Christmas if it wasn’t for God’s gift to us. This Christmas, before we exchange any gifts, I hope that we think about how we can first share the greatest gift of all, the Unspeakable Gift.
Welcome to day 13 of Advent: He is the Unspeakable Gift.

Have you ever received a gift that left you speechless? If so, what was it?
What can you do to share the Unspeakable Gift this season with others?
Prayer: Dear Jesus, Thank You for being too marvelous for my words. Thank you for coming, paying the ultimate sacrifice, and coming again. Thank you for being the greatest gift in life. I am sorry if I have taken you for granted. I desire to become more aware of You, and who You are, so that I will fall even more in love with you. I love you more than any gift. Thank you Jesus. Amen.
