Simplicity in Christ

As Christians gathered this week to dissect how they think God does things, I'm praising the LORD for what He has done. His ways are beyond finding out with our puny minds. We know in part - when we see Him face to face then we will know fully.

He has revealed Himself to babes - has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise. The smartest guys on the planet still must become as little children to enter into the Kingdom of God. He exalts the humble and humbles those who exalt themselves.

Jesus Christ, Redeemer, Savior, Lord, Master, Friend, Advocate -- I could go on and on. There is none like Him! He can be known personally to those who call upon His name out of love and thankfulness for all He has done on our behalf. "Thank you Jesus" is no cliche for those with a grateful heart.

Our good Shepherd says that all who come to Him, He will in no wise cast out. Must we know the mechanics of how that happens, free will or irresistible grace, in order for our reaching out to Him to be valid? What a foolish notion!

We love Him - that's all we need to know. We follow His voice and will not heed the voice of a stranger- that's what matters. We anticipate with excitement in our hearts His soon return whether or not we have all the timing figured out.

The Gospel is so simple - why do we need to complicate it?

"But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence." - 1 Cor 1:27-29
