“But God--so rich is He in His mercy!  Because of and in order to satisfy the great and wonderful and intense love with which He loved us.”  Ephesians 2:4 AMP

“But God” is such a wonderful saying.  Whatever is going on, whatever you may be feeling or seeing, “but God” is the answer!

So rich is He in His mercy!  Mercy in the Greek means goodwill, compassion and love, kindness, active tender mercy.  So rich is He in His goodwill, compassion and kindness toward us!  Why?  To satisfy His great AND wonderful AND intense love for us! 

When thoughts or not so good feelings come, we can say “but God!!”  His great, wonderful and intense love for us has made us righteous!  We don’t get what we deserve because Jesus did.  He took all of our sin and sicknesses.  He took the curse of sin for us.

“In this the love of God was made manifest (displayed), where we are concerned, in that God sent His Son, the only begotten or unique Son, into the world so that we might live through Him.” (1 John 4:9) 

But God, sent His Son, and now we can live through Him, because of His great, wonderful and intense love for us!

Many Blessings,
