The JOURNEY – A Simple Life – Col.2:6 MSG – “My counsel for you is simple and straightforward: Just go ahead with what you’ve been given. You received Christ Jesus, the Master; now live Him.”
I’ve met a lot of people that try to complicate what Christ has made simple. Many saints of the past were far less educated but had a much easier grasp on the simple side of faith. They never had Hebrew and Greek translations or access to all the information that we have now to complicate our faith. Paul makes a “simple and straightforward” remark concerning our walk “Just go ahead with what you’ve been given. You received Christ Jesus”. Although there are many aspects and much to be learned from the Word, I believe we get away from the simple and straightforward too easy.
Don’t allow yourself to get up in or hung up on things that hold you back. The simple and straightforward of it is that Jesus saved you from the power and dominion of sin and satan’s grip on your life. He’s given you eternal life and all the forgiveness you’ll need to erase your past and cover your future. He’s given you His Spirit to seal His promises and guide you in life to live it to the fullest.
Is there more to learn, know, and grow from? Yes, but don’t trade the simple and straightforward for the complicated and don’t complicate a life Christ has made easy. That’s the “simple and straightforward” of it.
