“ If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.“
Something that has come up a lot at my church recently is that the Gospel is simple. So often, we over-complicate it. And it is when it is over-complicated that it can often lose its beauty.
But it’s simple. All we have to do is believe that Christ is the Son of God. That’s it. Cut and dry. He made it simple so that anyone could understand it.
“Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.'” -Matthew 19:14
“And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, ‘Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.'” -Matthew 18:2-4
It’s so simple a child can understand it. Don’t make the Gospel too complicated…it will detract from its richness and beauty.
