heart hiding, Scripture Memorization

God’s Unspeakable Gift {heart hiding 15/38}


God’s Unspeakable Gift {heart hiding 15/38}.  Heart Hiding is hiding God’s Word in our heart by memorizing whole books of Scripture.  To read more go to the Heart Hiding page.

This is Week 38 of Heart Hiding, memorizing 2 Corinthians 6-10.  How are you doing, my friend?  Don’t be discouraged.  Just keep working at it, and don’t give up.  I can personally testify to God’s faithfulness in this discipline, under the most trying circumstances.  

This is Week 38 of Heart Hiding, memorizing 2 Corinthians 6-10,  where we are memorizing  2 Corinthians chapter 9, verses 13 through 15:

13 Whiles by the experiment of this ministration they glorify God for your professed subjection unto the gospel of Christ, and for your liberal distribution unto them, and unto all men;

14 And by their prayer for you, which long after you for the exceeding grace of God in you.

15 Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.

2 Corinthians 9:13-15

Just what is God’s ‘unspeakable gift’?  Is it the act of ministering to the saints, in giving financially?  Is it being on the receiving end of this grace?  Is it the love evidenced by the prayers of the givers?  Is it God Himself?  Or is it the glory which God receives through the ministration of His grace, be it by prayer or financial giving or some other means?  Or something else?

What do you think?  take a moment to share your idea in the comment box below .. it’s open for discussion.

********Just a note about Scripture Typer, if you are using or considering using it.  Recently the non-mobile version underwent a huge update, which was a tad overwhelming at first.  First, if you have a comment or question, they are great about answering, and quite understanding.  And second, just hang in there until you get used to the new format.  In the long run it will be worth it.

If you have a comment or question for me, please use the comment box at the end of the post or the contact form at the top of the page.

Don’t forget to review the previous weeks’ verses 🙂  

The key to memorization is review!

Review 2 Corinthians 6:1-18; 7:1-16; 8:1-24; 9:1-12.

Have a great week working on these verses.  See you next Sunday.  God bless.

    Hi Joyce, I reread the chapter and looked up 2 Corinthians 9:15 here https://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=G1431&t=KJV and looked up the word for “gift”. After reading what Vine’s and Thayer’s say about that Greek word and looking at the other New Testament verses that use that word, I think it means grace. “The exceeding grace of God” mentioned in 2 Corinthians 9:14.

    Maybe they had the spiritual gift of giving like in Romans 12:6-8. “Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us…” Romans 12:6. They glorified God by showing their faith through their liberal giving, and this was evidence of God’s indescribable gift of grace at work in their hearts.

    Maybe a related note: 2 Corinthians 8:12

    Maybe it is so challenging to understand and that is why Paul referred to it as an “unspeakable” gift (or “indescribable” in NKJV)

      Then the question becomes what is grace? 🙂

      These are almost rhetorical questions .. ones to mull and ponder and let the Holy Spirit give discernment. I have a hunch it’s a lot simpler than we make it, while at the same time it’s very depth makes it complex. We are, after all, talking about God, Who cannot be explained in human terms. Some day we will understand!

      Thanks so much for taking time to enter into the discussion, Karen. God bless!
