Matthew 2:13-23

In a moment of praise, the Apostle Paul once declared, “Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift.” An indescribable gift is a good way to explain the gift God gave us when He sent Jesus into the world. The reactions to that first Christmas gift were as varied as could be imagined – some responded with hostility, some with bewilderment and only a few saw the gift’s true value and welcomed it as they should. This passage helps us understand the significance of the gift God gave.
