The Simplicity of Faith

“Only believe... But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.”
(Luke 8:50; 2Cor.11:3)

Over the years I have always held on to a belief which has been tested, tried and proven to be absolutely true – God is so simple; it takes man to complicate Him.

Any form of complexity, controversy or ambiguity that has ever been associated with God's dealings with Man was all done away with in Jesus Christ. Heb1:1-2.

To further simplify things for us, God did not only 'show us what to do' (Matt.17:5), His Son Jesus has 'showed us how to do it' (John14:1), and finally the Holy Spirit has come 'to help us do it' (Jn 16:13). Such is the amazing trilogy of the Godhead. All obstacles or excuses for unbelief have thus been removed in Christ Jesus.

God came to personally solve mankind's misguided search for Him by searching us out. The turmoil that our troubled hearts have put us through came to an end when God wrapped up all our expectations towards Him in one person – His Son Jesus Christ (Heb.1:2b-3). The simple act of believing in Jesus hands over the driver's seat of our troubled lives to the Author and Finisher of our faith, thus initiating peace with God.

This theology of sonship, otherwise called faith is too high for 'creeps'! No wonder the serpent (the creepiest of them all) has deployed all possible tricks in the book to keep our hearts burdened. His plan is to keep us from rising through faith and take our position in Christ as sons and daughters of the Most High God.

Why not dare to believe today and watch the Sun of Righteousness break through the dark clouds of unbelief, and the web of deceit in your heart. Let him bring into your heart the healing in his wings. It is your time to Arise, Shine for your light has come. And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you  (Isaiah 60:1).
