The Simplicity of the Gospel

But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ (2 Cor. 11:3.)

This month I want to encourage you to remember of the Gospel’s simplicity; that it’s simply Good News. Jesus said that He came to preach good tidings to the poor; to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised. (Luke 4:18) In other words, He came to make our lives better in every way.

Abundance is better than lack. Happiness is better than sorrow. Health is better than sickness, and liberty’s better than bondage. Sight is better than blindness, and comfort is better than pain. So if you have any kind of problem at all, great or small, you can rest assured that Jesus wants to make it better.

Whether or not you deserve His help is irrelevant. His means of bringing the miracle to pass is beside the point. The simple fact of the matter is that He is both willing and able to help, and according to the Bible, you can count on Him to do just that.
