BUT among you stands (John 1:26-27)

“I baptize with water,” John replied,
“BUT among you stands one you do not know.
He is the one who comes after me,
the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie.”
John 1:26-27
What amazes me about this verse is as John the Baptist is being challenged about Baptizing people Jesus is standing amongst the crowd. How often do we get caught up in what we think is right and miss spending time with Jesus as part of everyday life?

BUT the one and only Son (John1:18)

 No one has ever seen God,
BUT the one and only Son,
who is Himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made Him known.
John 1:18
Have you seen God? Draw close to Jesus and you will be amazed at how He will show you the Father. You don't have to physically see them to experience their love, grace and mercy. Steal a few minutes of your day today and look for God.

BUT now you are light (Ephesians 5:8)

For you were once in darkness,
BUT now you are light in the Lord.
Live as children of light
Ephesians 5:8
What if we that call ourselves children of God were to live as children of the light?

BUT envy rots the bones (Proverbs 14:30)

A heart at peace gives life to the body, BUT envy rots the bones.
Proverbs 14:30
Don't let life pass you by because you  compare yourself to others. You really have no ideas what they may be going through even though they may seem to have everything and have it all together- and more importantly count your blessings.

BUT whoever gathers money (Proverbs 13:11)

Dishonest money dwindles away, but whoever gathers money little by little makes it grow.
Proverbs 13:11

BUT even if He does not (Daniel 3:17-18)

"If we are thrown into the blazing furnace,
 the God we serve is able to deliver us from it,
and He will deliver us from Your Majesty’s hand.
BUT even if He does not, we want you to know,
Your Majesty, that we will not serve
your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.
Daniel 3:17-18
LOVE this kind of faith! To know that facing a fire with God
is better then surrendering to a false god and going at life alone.

BUT God demostrates His own LOVE (Romans 5:8)

BUT God demonstrates His own love for us in this:
While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:8
I am not sure what you are hoping for this Valentines day maybe flowers and card, dinner and gifts.
Don't forget how much you are loved by your Heavenly Father. These earthy gifs will fade BUT His love for you never will.
