Simple Things

  1. The Simplicity of Scripture What if God’s word actually was perfectly
    inspired and preserved and was God-breathed? What if since it was God’s
    word it actually had the attributes of God? What if by taking away from
    or adding to God’s word (because you didn’t like it or understand it), you
    were actually making an idol – making a false image of God?
  2. The Simplicity of being a Sheep See Psalm 23. Illustration of sheep
    and shepherds in the Negev desert.
  3. Simplicity of the Unseen We have plenty of biblical examples of God
    working behind the scenes. We see it in Ruth. We see it is Esther.
    So wouldn’t it be something if we just did things the way God told us
    and then trust him for the results? How about it pastors and preachers
    actually found out what God’s word said and then gave that to his people
    – and then trusted God with results. What if Christians were to treat
    each other the way the bible says and then trust that nonbelievers would
    see the difference and be attracted to it? What if we believed that God was acting whether we saw the results or not. Wouldn’t it be something
    if we found out that rewards were given for only the results we did see ?
  4. Simplicity of Supplication That is prayer. Wouldn’t it be something if
    in the matter of getting to God to act, to get involved in a situation, was
    merely a matter of Christians praying? What if we found out in Heaven
    that God did NOT act in some situation because no one prayed?
  5. The Simplicity of Separation Wouldn’t it be something if separation
    was simply a matter of listening to what God told you personally what
    he didn’t want you to do, or places he didn’t want you to go, or people he
    didn’t want you to be with?
  6. The Simplicity of Service would it be something if Christian service
    was merely a matter of finding out what God specifically wanted you to
    do, and then doing it? How about just doing what you are definitely told
    to do – that is those passages that say stuff like “This is the will of God” …
    like abstaining from fornication in 1 Thessalonians 4:3, like giving thanks
    in 1 Thessalonians 5:3
  7. Simplicity of Salvation — Pictured by:
    A. Revelation 3:20 shows that salvation is like letting someone in the
    door Things (Revelation 3:20) Revelation 3:20: Behold, I stand at
    the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I
    will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
    B. John 14:14 tells us that getting saved is like taking a drink of water
    (John 4:14) John 4:14: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I
    shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him
    shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
    C. John 10:9 says that getting saved is like walking through a door (John
    10:9) John 10:9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall
    be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
    D. Romans 6:23 says “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God
    is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Ephesians 2:8,9 says
    “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves:
    it is the gift of God: [9] Not of works, lest any man should boast.” So,
    salvation is simply like opening a gift.
    E. In Luke 15 we have the story of the prodigal son, who after wasting
    away his inheritance, after ruining his life, a wantonly pursuing plea-
    sure and experience, returns home to a father who is overjoyed to see
    him and welcomes him with open arms. Salvation is like coming home
    to a welcoming father.
