My Title: BUT God!


My Verse: 8

"8 For by grace you have been saved through faith."

My Response:

I WAS DEAD. - I was following the course of this world. I was walking with satan & my heart BUT GOD HAD PLANS to have me walk in GOOD WORKS BECAUSE OF CHRIST.


  1. God LOVED me

  2. So He SENT JESUS to DIE for me

  3. He has PLANS for me to WALK in GOOD WORKS

NOT the other way around:

  1. I have done enough works

  2. So Jesus died for me

  3. So that God would love me.

BUT GOD. The two BEST words in the Bible. Thank you God for the good news. Thank you Jesus for your sacrifice. Lord, show me the plans you have for me to walk in good works. Give me the faith, strength and courage to join you in the story you've been telling since before you created time.


My Notes:

  • I was dead!

  • I was following the course of the world.

  • I was following the prince of the power of the power of the air.

  1. The spirit that is at work in the sons of disobedience.

  2. Among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh.

  • MY FLESH and MY HEART WANT to disobey.


  • BUT GOD!!!

  • He loved me even when I was still in my sins!

  • He made me alive!

  • That's WHY Jesus died! (with Him ... you can't even measure!)

  • I was created for GOOD WORKS!
