simplicity

Paul said to the struggling Corinthian church:

For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God . . . . For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.[1]

      The Gospel message is simple enough for a child to understand yet deep enough for the theologian to study a lifetime. Yet the Gospel is such a wonderful, powerful truth (1 Cor 15)! May the Lord help us all to become more like Christ as we gaze upon God Himself. May God help us to live His truth so that we can walk with Him and be lights of witness in this dark world.
