Keep it Simple Saint !
The power of God is in the simplicity of Christ.
Many in the wilderness began to loath the light bread from heaven called Manna .
Manna was a type and shadow of Christ!
Today many loath the simple message of Christ, grace and faith righteousness .
Many say we need more meat !
Many have actually been persuaded to believe that the simple message of Christ, grace and faith righteousness are elementary .. they need more meat
But what they fail to understand is that the meat they are craving is actually choking the life right out of them and keeping them bound in immaturity
Many are being tossed about by every wind of doctrine. Ephesians 4:14
The message and wisdom of God is in the simplicity of the gospel of Christ. 2 Corinthians 11:3
The kingdom of God is not meat or drink but righteousness peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. ￼
scripture says that the truly mature are the ones who are skilled in the word of righteousness .
For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. Hebrews 5:13
We never graduate from grace , we grow in grace.
There’s alot of immaturity in the body of Christ today because many have no clue about the word of faith righteousness￼￼.
Many think they know but they don’t know ..
the proof is in the pudding
Many have no clue about the finished work of the cross, their identity in Christ or why it’s important to know why Christ was even raised from the dead.
Many are ever learning but never coming to the knowledge of the truth.
We have sin accountability programs because we don’t understand that grace actually sets us free from the dominion of sin.
Are we supposed to be focused on sin or on Christ the Lamb of God who actually took away the sin of the world?
Much of what we have called discipleship the apostle Paul called bewitchment!
Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh? Galatians 3:3
You who began in the spirit are you now made perfect by the flesh?
Theres a big difference between
Self discipline and Self control
One is of the flesh , the other a fruit of the Spirit.
We really do need to abandon our own wisdom and seek to walk in the wisdom of the Lord no matter how elementary, simple or foolish it may seem to be to our own intelligence!
1 Corinthians 1:18
For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. www.gracelifemb.com
