Simplicity is a practice….

God: use the base things to confound the wise…

1 Corinthians 2:1-5 (KJV) “And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God”.

In our society today we hear preachers and teachers of the word of God and at time when you settle down to listen to a word about the goodness of God and His son Jesus Christ and all that He has done for us; it get pretty confusing very quickly as the word becomes a discourse in some very high level science study.

In my simple way, salvation comes about by the death of Jesus Christ as an obedient son to the Father of this world. He suffered, He died, He resurrected: there are many ways to tell the story as it relates to your personal story, but it stays the same.

Paul could be described as one of the most learned men in the NT, but that doesn’t deter him from writing a story that unfolds in all it’s simplicity to us at all levels.

May the blessed Lord of our salvation bless us with a simple understanding of His word that doesn’t cause a shadow over our understanding….

  1. The Bible is deep, but it is also practical. Thanks for reminding us to keep it real and live it!

    You are absolutely right. Sometimes I get rather wordy. But some things really are simple.

    My former priest related recently that an early mentor of his said, “When things start getting simple, you know you are getting somewhere, spiritually.”
