(“Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!”

–2 Corinthians 9:15 NIV)

Consider.

Jesus, our Savior, is:

  • Incomparable – without equal or rival (Psalm 86:8)

 

85d81ac7ab8a0b3947d92604f1091b4f

 

  • Incomprehensible – beyond understanding or knowing; unfathomable (Romans 11:33)

  • Indescribable – exceeding description (Jeremiah 10:6-7)

  • Indisputable — incontestable (Isaiah 40:13-14)

  • Inestimable – of incalculable value (Psalm 145:3)

  • Inexhaustible – incapable of being used up or consumed or becoming tired (Revelation 1:8; Psalm 121:3)

  • Infallible – cannot fail or even make a mistake (Psalm 145:17)

  • Invariable – never-changing (Hebrews 13:8)

  • Invisible – John 1:18

And those nine descriptors only begin to define Jesus. No matter how many fancy, multi-syllable words we might collect, the attributes of God’s Son are beyond full comprehension.  And he is God’s gift to us.

Oh, Jesus, how we thank you for giving up the splendor of heaven and the glory of your deity, to take on human form and become our Savior. How incomprehensible that you could love such pitiful creatures as mankind. Nevertheless you came so that we, too, could become God’s sons and daughters. Even more incredible, many of the descriptors above will be true of us—on that day when you appear again, and  We.  Shall.  Be.  Like.  You. 

(Philippians 2:6-7; John 3:16; Romans 8:29; 1 John 2:2)
