“Impossible to Describe”

Have you ever experienced something that was so fantastic and you wanted to desperately talk about, but it was impossible to come up with descriptive words?  Here’s something every Christian has in common.  First, one will never become a Christian without accepting and experiencing the salvation Jesus Christ offers.  “Salvation is the gift of eternal life given us by God through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23).  This gift is made available to every person who has been or ever will be born.  There is nothing you or I must do or can do for our salvation, because what is necessary has already been done.  Your and my sins have been paid in full by the sacrificial death of Jesus on the Cross.  This sin debt, which has been fully paid for, results into a wonderful gift called SALVATION!


This gift MUST BE RECEIVED by EVERY INDIVIDUAL having a desire to go to Heaven when they die.  There is no other option!  Jesus said, “I am the way, truth and the life.  No one will come unto the Father except through me” (John 14:6).   This gift is called SALVATION of which Hebrews 2:3 states this, “How shall we escape, if we neglect (ignore) so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him” (KJV).  So, how great is this salvation?  The writer said, “So great!”  Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 9:15: “Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!”  Your salvation – my salvation is so GREAT the Bible writers couldn’t come up with words to describe it.  They simply said it’s, “So Great,” and “Indescribable!”


Obviously this gift is pretty special wouldn’t you agree?  I heard someone give a response when asked, “What does your salvation feel like?”  The person said, “It’s better felt then telt!”  In other words, they couldn’t explain it.  A relationship with Christ is like non-other.  Sure we have close family relationships and terrific friends.  They all, in their own way make an impact upon our lives – but walking with Jesus is more than a mere relationship – it’s TRANFORMATIONAL!!  I’ve heard people testify to their salvation by saying, “If Jesus hadn’t forgiven me and provided me with a new start (new life), I’d most likely have been killed by now.”  Others have shared, “Jesus saved my marriage and kept my family together.”  What is your life like today in comparison to what it was before you invited Christ into your heart?  If you are like me and the writers mentioned above, “My life is So Great,” or maybe, “It’s Indescribable!”  If you’ve never asked Jesus to forgive your sins and come into your heart, what are you waiting for?  God’s indescribable gift is available for you, BUT YOU MUST RECEIVE IT!!
