GOD makes it simple-we make it complicated

Filed under: Thoughts — gbrad @ 11:18 pm

From as far back as Adam & Eve God has endeavored to make our lives blissfully simple-yet we cannot follow the simplest of instructions: “Don’t eat from this tree. You may eat from any other tree BUT this one” We can’t even get that right!! We let ourselves get distracted. . . by the least little thing. And even then . . . John 3:16-17. He breaks off a piece of himself as a perfect sacrifice to himself to suffer and die just so that we could have the opportunity to be in right relationship with Him. Romans 5:6-8 How does ANY one who professes to be Christian expect to please GOD by twisting the Scriptures to suit their own purposes? If you want to simplify your life – Go with GOD.



  1. The question I ask is “why are we drawn to making things SO complicated?” I’m we always complain on how “complicated” things are, yet we completely give ourselves to these vices…why? Why is it so hard when God is standing right in front of us willing to organize our lives. Why is hard for me to Go with God?

  2. Our sin nature and … our reluctance to give it up . . . but Scripture says “No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; . . .”
