The word BUT is defined and used to introduce something contrasting with what has already been mentioned. In this Blog I enjoy discovering how God uses the word BUT to clarify and set us straight. My hope is that you will read the passage and consider the thoughts added and then add you own thoughts or challenges.

BUT when the set time (Galatians 4:4-7)
BUT when the set time had fully come,
God sent his Son,
born of a woman,
born under the law,
to redeem those under the law,
that we might receive adoption to sonship.
Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba,Father.”
So you are no longer a slave,
BUT God’s child; and since you are his child,
God has made you also an heir.
This may not seem like a "normal" Christmas verse. BUT read it again.... every word!
GOD TRULY sent the Greatest Christmas Present ever!
Accept Christ birth.
Open this gift of redemption.
Cry out Daddy I need you.
Be filled with the confidence of knowing YOU ARE A CHILD OF THE KING!
