It’s the Simple Things

There’s not a lot of good news on the news these days, I’m sure you’ve noticed. But even when things are going well, I think we have a tendency to over-think and over-complicate them. Most things, at the end of the day, are pretty simple – especially, let me say, the truth.

Stock markets, shares, dividends, futures trading, derivatives, exchange rate fluctuations, inflation, deflation … it’s a pretty complex thing, the old economy. 

And yet, at the end of the day, money’s a pretty simple thing – spend less than you earn, balance your priorities, save some for the future, invest wisely – it’s not rocket science. Yet, with all the sophistication of the financial markets, household debt has never been higher, at a time when we’ve never been wealthier.

It’s a bit like a theological library I walked into a few years ago. It had so many books, essentially about God. And I thought to myself, “How can so many people write so many books about something that’s so simple, at a time when most people have never been further from God?”

Maybe in all that complexity, we somehow lose sight of the simple truth.

John 3:16 Yes, God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him would not be lost but have eternal life.

That’s the good news. Jesus died to pay the price of our sin, yours and mine, on that Cross; the price that God’s innate justice demanded, so that you and I could go free, so that you and I – if we would only put our trust in this Jesus – would receive the free gift of eternal life.

Lots of theologians have written lots of books about God … good for them. But the Good News of Jesus Christ … well, that’s something so simple that even I can understand it.

In Christ, you’re forgiven. Trust Him.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.

Lucy, abuse is never okay. You need to draw boundaries, get some help and resolve this for your own wellbeing. Please don’t try to go it on your own. [email protected]

Listening each day to Fresh has made me re-grow my trust in God. I am working in the UK (I’m Nigerian) as a domestic worker but each day emotionally abused by the family I work for and I cannot report them to authorities because they are family. I always look forward to Fresh message to renew my strength in God.God bless you all.
