Pastor Mark Driscoll put it like this,
Jesus was generous. He was generous to become a human being. He was generous to go to the cross and suffer and die to pay our debt of sin to God. Three days later, he rose, conquering Satan’s sin and death, to give us the generous gift of God the Holy Spirit, to give us the generous gift of salvation, to give us the generous gift of eternal life. Jesus is the greatest, most generous giver who has ever given. And his greatest gift was himself as a substitute and sacrifice on the cross to pay the penalty of our sins. Our Jesus is generous. Our Jesus is gracious. Our Jesus is a giver.
