Why do we complicate what He made simple? That question has been plaguing me lately. Why are there so many questions about what’s right and wrong when Jesus came and simply told us right from wrong?
Is there any question why people don’t come to the church? We have made a simple message extremely complex. We’ve created gray areas where there is only black and white. Heaven or Hell. Yes or no.
Jesus had some simple messages. Yes, I believe that as you grow in Him you are able to see how in depth those messages really are, but for the most part, simplicity was key. So I wonder, why do we make worship so complicated? Why do we make scripture complicated? Isn’t there a reason Paul said he made his message simple, and the Holy Spirit did the rest?
1 Corinthians 2:4-5
And my message and my preaching were very plain. Rather than using clever and persuasive speeches, I relied only on the power of the Holy Spirit. I did this so you would trust not in human wisdom but in the power of God.
