The Simplicity Of The Gospel

 

Beware if your Christianity is complicated. But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ” (2 Corinthians 11:3 NKJV). We are saved by grace through faith. That is simple, easy to understand, and to the point. However, from there the simple message of the Gospel goes awry. As the Galatians who soon perverted the gospel of grace with law, the church today is doing the same. Instead of it being all about Jesus, we are putting self into the picture. For some reason the church thinks salvation by grace is good, but that we have to do something to live out our lives.

Jesus did it all. We don’t do anything but rest in Him. The church is thinking we must move on from grace to the deeper things of God. Folks, grace is the deeper things of God. We haven’t begun to plumb the depths of grace. Everything in the Bible is about Jesus from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21. It’s simple. It’s about Jesus. Everything culminates in the death burial and resurrection of Jesus. Jesus fulfilled the law, and we are now under the simplicity of Grace. It can’t get any simpler.
