The Simplicity of Christ
Paul’s greatest fear was that his brothers and sisters in the Lord might be “corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ” (II Corinthians 11:3b). Christ is on the side of simplicity, while religion is usually on the side of complexity.
Jesus said His yoke is easy and His burden is light. Have you made the Christian life too difficult? So often, man takes something easy and light and turns it into something difficult and heavy. Jesus is calling us to forsake the complicated way and to follow Him in sincerity and simplicity.
In these four messages we talk about Jesus, fellowshipping with one another, growing up spiritually, and exercising spiritual discernment in the midst of all the confusion. We try to strip away all the complicated layers and complexities and get to the simple heart of things. If you’re frustrated and fed up with “trying to be a good Christian”, our prayer is that you will find simplicity and joy in the Lord as we examine these truths.
