The word “but” I think is one the most powerful word a human can say It is small, but it has the power to sweep away everything that has gone before it. Coming after some bad news, it has the power to lift the eyes and restore hope. More than any other word that can be spoken by a human tongue, It has the ability to change everything. - “The plane went down but no one was hurt.” - “You have cancer. But it is treatable.” - “Your son was in a car wreck but he’s fine.”


Sadly, sometimes the “but” does not come. Sometimes the sentence stops, and all we get is the bad news. Yet those moments only magnify for us the times when the “but” does come. And they are glorious.






In relation to our hopeless, mundane, pointless lives... Listen to what the Bible says... “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8 Come to think of this: In this world, hopeful “buts” doesn’t come all the time. There can be no good news after some bad news. But according to God’s word, the bad news of human sin and the judgment of hell is not the end of the story, God has acted to save sinners like you and me. We are all sick, in need of a physician.


Mark 2:17 When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.


Luke 19:10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.


God has given us His heavenly love by sending His own Son - JESUS CHRIST to die on the cross for our sins and to save us from the eternal torments of hell. What a glorious truth!


Repent and accept Him now as your Saviour and Lord.



“God has acted to save sinners like you and me”
