The Greatest Simplicity

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 (ESV)

Life can get so complicated at times. During the Christmas season the traffic increases, last-minute shopping intensifies, and stress elevates. There are so many expectations to meet and so many lists to complete. Then there is the challenge to find gifts for family members who already have so much.

In the midst of a life of complexity, the greatest simplicity is knowing the way to respond to God’s offer of salvation. God has given you His very best, Jesus, to become the Lord and Savior of your life. God gave His Son to be the sacrifice for your sin and to purchase your salvation. He has paved the way for you to come into an abiding relationship with Jesus.

  • “Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.” Rom. 10:9-10 (ESV)
  • “And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.” 1 John 5:11-12 (ESV)

The gift of eternal life has been made available to you. Now it is time for you to receive what God has provided for you. The greatest simplicity involves the decision to place your faith in Jesus alone for salvation. To believe in Jesus is to place your total confidence in His redemptive work on the cross and to believe that He was raised from the dead.

The Greatest Simplicity

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 (NIV)

There are so many expectations to meet and so many lists to complete. Then there is the challenge to find gifts for family members who already have so much.

  • “And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.” 1 John 5:11-12 (NIV)

Omnipotence

“I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory.” Psalms 63:2 (NIV)

God is all-powerful. There is nothing God cannot do. Someone once asked me, “Can God make a rock so large that even He cannot lift it?” My response is that God would not make a rock that He could not lift because that would go against God’s nature and character. Weigh this reality, God is omnipotent. There is nothing God cannot handle. There is nothing God cannot solve. There is nothing God cannot remedy.

  • “You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.” Psalms 77:14 (NIV)
  • “Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.” Romans 4:20-21 (NIV)
  • “‘Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be barren is in her sixth month. For nothing is impossible with God.’” Luke 1:36-37 (NIV)

What giant are you facing? Do you believe that God is more powerful than your giant? Moses placed his trust in the power of God as he stood between the approaching Egyptian Army and the Red Sea. David placed his trust in God’s power as he stood before the towering giant, Goliath. Daniel rested in God’s power as he read between the lions. You can trust in God’s power to sustain you in seasons of uncertainty and deliver through seasons of adversity.
