The Simplicity of the Gospel

Do you know what I love about the Gospel? It’s profoundly simple, it’s direct, and it’s pure – all rare qualities in today’s modern world

We live in a Spiritual prison, and yet, most of us don’t even realise! We fight for freedom on so many levels, but the war has ultimately been won

So many people think that knowing God means the end of life as they know it because the notion that Jesus came to set us free (John 8:36) is confusing – this world seeks to control, manipulate, and drive fears, but God turns our thinking upside down and inside out

The Gospel was refreshing to me – not because finding Him meant the end, but it was the exact opposite; finding Christ made me realise how simple life can be – I don’t need to strive, I have peace, and joy is in my heart. I understand that fear and worry are futile against my loving Father, but most of all, I know that I am a sinner, and God is not

Therefore, life is about understanding the Father, because when you do, you realise that He truly is love.

He died…out of love

He restores…out of love

He journeys with us…out of love

He gave us the freedom of choice…out of love

Friends, when God says, stop sinning and do what is right. It’s not a demand to make us His prisoners but an invitation to freedom and abundant living

Sin is being outside of God’s will.

So what’s God’s will? To love Him and others – sin takes us outside of that thinking, because ultimately we are either hurting ourselves, others, or worse, God

“And this is his commandment: We must believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as he commanded us. Those who obey God’s commandments remain in fellowship with him, and he with them. And we know he lives in us because the Spirit he gave us lives in us.” 1 John‬ ‭3:23-24‬
