But God

"But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth His Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons" (Galatians 4:4-5).

God makes all the difference! There was a time when the whole world was in bondage to sin and death. But God!

"But God sent forth His Son, made of a woman, . . . To redeem them that were under the law," and because He did, "the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God" (Romans 8:21).

There was a problem, however, for every man individually was still a lost sinner, deserving to die under the righteous and well-deserved wrath of a Holy God. But God!

"But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8). He died for us, suffering in our place, because He loved us. The issue is not yet settled, however, for how could a dead redeemer ever complete the work He was sent to do? But God!

"But God raised Him from the dead" (Acts 13:30). The price for sin was for ever settled and done, so that God, in full righteousness and in mighty power, could raise His beloved Son, alive forevermore.

Yes, but we ourselves are still sinful -- still dying. Our very nature keeps us still in bondage to sin, even though the price for our deliverance has been fully paid. But God!

"But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ. . . . For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God" (Ephesians 2:4,8). We cannot fully understand. But God does not require us to understand -- only to believe, and receive. HMM
