2 Corinthians 9:15
Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!
2 Corinthians 9:12-15
¹²For the ministry of this service is not only fully supplying the needs of the saints, but is also overflowing through many thanksgivings to God. ¹³Because of the proof given by this ministry, they will glorify God for your obedience to your confession of the gospel of Christ and for the liberality of your contribution to them and to all, ¹⁴while they also, by prayer on your behalf, yearn for you because of the surpassing grace of God in you. ¹⁵Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!
Because He rose victorious, I need not be defeated.
Once a woman was in a dreadful agony of mind.
Her husband had committed suicide. No words could console her.
She knew she was responsible, for by her continual nagging and faultfinding she had goaded him beyond endurance.
She said: “I did not realize what I’d done until I saw him die. Then it was too late.”
Every day we sin in thought, word, and deed.
We do not see what sin is like until we realize that it was sin just like ours that brought Jesus to His death.
By our stupidity, fickleness, and blindness we crucify Him afresh.
When looking at Him on the cross, we see what our sin is like and what it does.
We may well feel horror-struck and ashamed.
We need not despair because of the shameful thing our sin has done. Greater than our sin is Christ’s love.
In His all-conquering love we can know pardon and deliverance from sin and the power to lead a new life.
We can share individually in His victory that overcomes the sin of the world.
▪︎ Ask God in faith to help you to keep following Him, so that you too may share in His victory over sin and death.
