The Good News: But God!

Passage: Ephesians 2:4-7

Having set forth the bad news of humanity’s condition without Christ, Paul now begins to rise in praise as he proclaims the good news of what God has done to save us in and through Christ. These are possibly the two best words in all of scripture: But God! Our hopeless condition in sin, slavery, and rebellion is overcome only because of God and his gracious, loving character. God’s grace actually reverses our fallen condition. This text should make our hearts soar in thanksgiving for what God has accomplished, just another example of the truth that God helps those who can’t help themselves.
