Have life circumstances and situations caused you to say; But God? In Ephesians 2 Paul was reminding Christians of the dreadful and deplorable spiritual condition in which they were before God intervened in their lives.
In this intervention message, Dr. E. Dewey Smith clearly explains the relationship among our lack of obedience, the grace of God, and our salvation. It is only by mercy, and by grace, that God chooses to elevate us.
“But God” …These words teach us about God’s marvelous intervention in our lives. They tell what God has done and how God has intervened in what otherwise was an utterly hopeless situation.
Behold, we were born in sin and shapen in iniquity; …BUT GOD!
Ephesians 2:4 (KJV)
