Favorite Holiday Verse

giftOne of my favorite verses of Scripture for the holidays is 2 Corinthians 9:15—“Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!”

This is a great verse for Thanksgiving, because out of all the wonderful things that God has given us, the greatest blessing of all is the salvation that he freely offers us through his Son, Jesus. Through our faith in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, we can have the assurance that our sins are forgiven and we have been granted eternal life. For that, we must truly be thankful.

The verse is also appropriate for Christmas. When we think about all the gifts that are exchanged, they all pale in comparison to the greatest gift ever given, when God gave his Son Jesus to the world.

In this busy time between Thanksgiving and Christmas, let’s be sure we take time to give God thanks for Jesus!
