THE ' BUT GOD ' PRINCIPLE : EXPERIENCING GOD'S INTERVENTION WHEN WE FACE A CRISIS IN LIFE

******************************************************************************************************************************************

1. WHEN WE WERE DEAD IN SINS

When we were dead in our sins , God intervened in our lives and showed His mercy and grace and saved us from our sins through the death of His Son , the Lord Jesus Christ. We were facing eternal damnation and the wrath of God. But God who is rich in mercy , showered His love upon us and quickened us and made us alive together with Christ.

*****************************

EPHESIANS 2:1-5

And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins,

in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience,

among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.

But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,

even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),

ROMANS 5:6-8

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.

Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die.

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

2. WHEN WE FACE SICKNESS

When we face sickness , God will intervene in our lives and heal us . Epaphroditus , a fellow worker of the Apostle Paul was seriously ill and almost died . He was a very useful helper and a right hand man for the Apostle Paul. Naturally Paul was also deeply grieved about his illness. In this critical situation , God intervened and showed His mercy and healed Epaphroditus and also spared Apostle Paul from experiencing great sorrow. When we face such a crisis of health in our lives and in the lives of our loved ones , we can also experience God's intervention and healing and deliverance.

*****************************

PHILIPPIANS 2:25-30

But I think it is necessary to send back to you Epaphroditus, my brother, fellow worker and fellow soldier, who is also your messenger, whom you sent to take care of my needs.

For he longs for all of you and is distressed because you heard he was ill.

Indeed he was ill, and almost died. But God had mercy on him, and not on him only but also on me, to spare me sorrow upon sorrow.
