But God

And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience--among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath like the rest of mankind. But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ--by grace you have been saved. Ephesians 2:1-5 ESV (emphasis added).

"One of my favorite conjunctions in all the Bible is but God." ~ Michael Horton (The White Horse Inn).

  1. There is "BEAUTY" in the word "BUT", if you listen carefully. Spell the word "but" out loud. Now spell it out loud fast. See? :)
