Isaiah 9:6 In 2 Corinthians 9:15, the Apostle Paul calls Jesus Christ an “indescribable gift.” The word indescribable means that the gift of God’s grace through the coming of Jesus Christ is impossible to fully describe with human words. Jesus Christ is indescribable.
This Christmas season, you will probably participate in the tradition of giving gifts. Have you ever thought about the fact that few, if any, of the gifts you can give would be considered indescribable? You can measure them. You can attribute a price to them.

- You cannot place a value upon Him. You can only say that He is infinitely priceless.

- You can love and serve Him, but you cannot measure His majesty or His attributes.
- You can sing to Him and about Him, but you cannot fully comprehend Him.
