‘but God’

‘May I put it quite simply? If you understand those two words —‘but God’— they will save your soul. If you recall them daily and live by them, they will transform your life completely.’ – James Montgomery Boice

Paige Brown calls it ‘the grammar of grace’, the grammar that describes a God who acts in mercy, in lovingkindness, in faithfulness, against the dark backdrop of human sin and rebellion, the grammar of ‘but’s and ‘yet’s  and ‘while’s and ‘however’s. Scripture is replete with this grammar; these 8 passages are chosen because of personal preference, and also because of practicality (easier than ‘but he’, ‘yet you’, ‘but it was the will of God, etc).
