The simplicity of the Gospel often boggles the mind.  We are expected to believe something extraordinary – inconceivable – impossible.  We delude ourselves into thinking there has to be more to it than just a childlike faith, but the truth is that God in His infinite wisdom laid out His plan for humanity so many years ago – simply.

We were created by Him – we need His divine intervention because we were corrupted by the devil – He loves us so much that He came to us in human flesh to teach, admonish and die for us – He rose from death showing His power over it – He returned to heaven to prepare a perfect place for us to spend eternity with Him.

We aren’t used to such an incomprehensible love in our world.  Today, everyone seems to be from Missouri and has to be shown before they believe.  I guess that’s why God is God and we aren’t.

Too simple, some might say.  There has to be more to the story than that.  Isn’t there something we should be doing to speed up the process – to help God along with the work that needs to be done – to work our way into heaven?

It’s not about us.  It’s about the omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent Creator of heaven and earth.  When human reason gets in the way it gets complicated.  We cannot even begin to understand what God has in mind for us.  All we can do is believe that He has our best interests at heart.  He loves us with a love that is beyond our wildest dreams.  He designed us perfectly, but because of man’s desire to be on an even keel with Him, reason got in the way of that perfection.

Let’s forget about reason and just accept as children accept what their father tells them is true.  God loves us so much that He put Himself in our place to take our sins to the grave.  We can now rejoice in His salvation.  Because of that truth, we are set free of the bondage of this world and its ugliness.  We have the hope of everlasting life with our Creator. Very simple!


As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

    Thank you, Kathy. Forget reason. I read in a book by Lee Strobel, I think, but it might be another along his line, that we can no longer have “Blind Faith”. (Don’t get me wrong. I love Lee Strobel’s work.) The atheists that we are evangelizing to will never accept that answer (of blind faith). I bristled at that for many reasons. It seems that their evangelism was all intellectual. Evangelism, by its nature is spiritual. It defies reason and common sense, when reason and common sense are barriers to the Truth. Once they accept, they’ll know the flaw in their reasoning. I commented this morning on yesterday’s Live 4 Him post that we simply take that next step of faith, trusting that God will place something beneath our foot. That is “blind faith,” but it will happen more than once along each of our journeys of faith.
