Keep It Simple

Posted: September 13, 2017

Sometimes we complicate things and I've found the best way to get a refreshing view of all the good things of God is to simplify.  This verse helps a lot!

"The mystery in a nutshell is just this: Christ is in you, so therefore you can look forward to sharing in God’s glory. It’s that simple. That is the substance of our Message. We preach Christ, warning people not to add to the Message. We teach in a spirit of profound common sense so that we can bring each person to maturity. To be mature is to be basic. Christ! No more, no less."  (Colossians 1:27-28 MSG)

That is the best!  "Christ! No more, no less."  You could also say "Love! No more, no less."  or  "Truth! No more, no less."  It's so simple, isn't it?  Never easy...but simple.

Lord, even though You are omniscient and omnipotent, You still simplify for me.  When life is swirling out of control, help me to remember "Christ!  No more, no less."  Amen.
