Thanks be unto God for His indescribable gift!
2 Corinthians 9:15
Thank you, Father, for the gift of Your Son! Thank You for the plan that You had for us before the foundation of the earth! Your Son is indescribable! What a price He paid that we might have right standing with You!
Thank You that because of what Your Son accomplished, You sent Your “promise”, the Holy Spirit to live and guide each one of us. Jesus left us His name, that we might pray, communicate and conduct business with the Father in His name. And He left us the Word of God. Indescribable!
One of my great joys as a parent and grandparent is to observe who our three children and nine grandchildren favor in appearance and behavior. My husband jokingly says (I think he says it jokingly!) they all look just like him! The wife of my oldest son says he looks like his daddy, but acts like me.
The Father’s desire is to call forth His Spirit in each of us. In Galatians 4:19 Paul uses the phrase “till Christ be formed in you.” Andrew Murray says that’s what parents do. “The king labors to call forth a kingly spirit in his son.”
God’s indescribable plan for us is that God the Father calls forth His divine spirit in His sons and daughters.
Thanksgiving and Christmas are wonderful family times for the Stark family. Each of my three grown children and their children and even one great-grandson have a place at our table. There is a place card with their name on it. That’s because they’re a part of the Stark Family.
Jesus returned to heaven to prepare a place for us. He has set a table with our name at our seat and has issued the invitation, “Come and dine.” We can partake of the abundant life He has provided for us even now.
I am thankful
For The Father’s Son, Jesus.
For His redemption - His “buying us back.”
For the Holy Spirit given to us to teach and guide us
For the Father working on us to “call forth a kingly spirit” in us.
For making me a part of the family of God right now here on earth.
Our Abba Father, our very own Father, has given us an indescribable gift!
