Scripture: II Corinthians 9:8-15

We have just come to the end of another long Thanksgiving weekend. I can tell you that I have enjoyed myself throughout this holiday, and I trust that you have as well. During this time of the year, our hearts and minds turn to the many things that we are grateful for. And I truly have a lot to be grateful for because God has blessed me immensely. My dad used to say "God has smiled on me." And the Lord has shown great favor, grace, and mercy down through the years to me, my family, and everyone living today. In fact, if you are alive, you have a lot to thank God for. Paul tells the Corinthians in verse 11 of our passage that they have been "enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God."

However, the person I thank God for the most is His Holy Son, Jesus Christ, whom the Bible calls the "unspeakable gift." I feel that, particularly as we head into the Christmas season, and all of the commercialism that unfortunately goes along with it, it is good for us to do as that old hymn says and turn our eyes upon Jesus -- to put the focus on Him, the true reason for the season. And before you get back to your shopping and gift-buying and gift-giving, I want us to take this time together today to focus on God's "unspeakable gift" to us. That word "unspeakable" means something so wonderful that words cannot even describe it.

Today, I want to share with you three reasons why I thank God for Jesus Christ.
