But Then & French Toast Bake

Titus 3:4 (erv)

But then the kindness and love of God our Savior was made known.

Read

Right before this verse, Paul was talking about all the bad things he had done. Not just him, but the other believers. He gives specific examples like being a slave to his desires and being jealous. But then…

What I love about this verse is that it’s not focused on the sin, or even the sinner. Instead, it’s focused on the Savior. No matter what you and I have done in our lives, there’s always a “but then”. Because of grace, we’re forgiven.

I often feel like I’m too far gone. I’ve done too many terrible things, thought too many terrible thoughts, and behaved inappropriately one too many times. I start to believe the lies that I’ve really messed up; but then…

It’s easy to believe that we’re beyond forgiveness. I get so frustrated with myself because I’ve done the things I didn’t want to do, or said the things I didn’t want to say. I hate my behaviors and I begin to imagine that God does too. But then…

It’s the solution to our problems, the restoration for our souls, and the redemption for our hearts. God’s love and kindness is made known, and all is well. Here’s the point: no matter what you’ve done or said or thought, God saves. He rescues. He forgives and redeems. He doesn’t turn away or stick up His nose. He doesn’t give up on you. Because of Jesus, every wrong that you’ll ever do is followed by two simple words that will save us again and again; but then.

Write

Have you ever done something that you felt was unforgivable or too much for God? If so, write that something down in your journal today as a confession. Whatever it is, know that it’s not too much for God.

Pray

For forgiveness from your wrongs, and the unshakeable belief in God’s ability to love you beyond those wrongs.

Tips & Tools

Allowing this french toast bake to sit for 20 minutes before baking isn’t necessary, but it does allow the bread to better soak up the flavors of the egg mixture. Also, using slightly stale bread will improve the texture of this bake. You can set the bread out on the counter the night before making.
