His Indescribable Gift
There is a reason a picture is worth a thousand words: our abilities to describe things are pretty limited. You know this if you have ever tried to describe a piece of outdated technology to a younger person or attempted to describe a scene for a blind person.
But our words and concepts truly fall short when it comes to describing Christ's unsurpassed gift.
The Creator became creation because He loved us.
A King served His rebellious peasants because He loved us.
A Lion offered Himself as the sacrificial Lamb because He loved us.
What kind of love is that? Does any language even have a word that encompasses that mind-blowing degree of devotion?
We try, but our words and even our punctuation (!) cannot capture the grandeur of this overwhelming and scandalous love.
"Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be call children of God!" -- 1 John 3:1
