“He is an unspeakable gift” by J.C. Ryle

“There is an infinite ‘fulness’ in Christ; there are in Him ‘unsearchable riches;’ there is in Him a ‘love which passeth knowledge;’ He is an ‘unspeakable gift.’ (Col. 1:19; Eph. 3:8; 3:19; 2 Cor. 9:15.)

There is no end to all the riches which are treasured up in Him,—in His person, in His work, in His offices, in His words, in His deeds, in His life, in His death, in His resurrection.”

–J.C. Ryle, Old Paths: Being Plain Statements of Some of the Weightier Matters of Christianity (London: Charles J. Thynne, 1898), 436.
