The Simplicity That Is In Christ

2 Corinthians 11:3 “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.”

We have many tendencies to complicate things that God meant to be real simple.  We call things hard, that were intended to be real easy and we get confused about things that are supposed to be real easy to understand.  We are reminded that Satan’s intentions are to keep us from obeying the Lord.  The Lord makes His directions real clear, but Satan is the one that tries to confuse us.  When we give place to the Devil we are allowing ourselves to be pulled away from Christ.  The intentions of Satan is basically to corrupt our minds from the simplicity of Christ.  When give ear to Satan we are allowing corruption to enter our minds.

Satan will corrupt the mind in order to confuse the mind. 

God did not intend for the Christ-life to be difficult or confusing.  Sure there are difficulties and hard times, but God offers relief, rest, and revival for those that bring those difficulties to Him.  Man has tried to complicate the Bible while God intended for it to be quite simple.  We must remember the simplicity that is in Christ.

  • Christ had a Simple Message – Believe on Christ and you will be Saved
  • Christ had a Simple Command – Follow Me

If you think about it, everything about Christ and the Christ-life is real simple.  Just do what He says and it will not get complicated.  However; we question, we doubt, and we rebel against the very simplest of lifestyles.

Today’s Challenge:  ­Quit complicated things through unbelief and start believing in the simplicity that is in Christ.
