Don’t Make It More Complicated Than It Is

There are times when we make things more complicated than they need be. The reasons for doing this are varied, but the result is the same – we end up frustrating ourselves and confusing others. Unfortunately, Christians can have the tendency to make our relationship with God more complicated than it needs to be with the predictable results. We often feel like we aren’t getting much out of our faith life and people who ask us about what it means to be a Christian walk away wondering what we actually do believe.

The Apostle John wrote a letter many years ago as a resource guide to anyone who wanted a short Christianity 101 class. This Sunday we’re going to be looking at a small portion of that letter, but what we’ll find is a simple yet powerful explanation of how Christians live, what they believe and what they avoid. John’s presentation is accessible to a young child yet deep enough to keep a scholar pondering his thoughts. Most important, this apostle unleashes the life changing message of Jesus Christ in a way that removes possible misunderstandings.

If you want Christianity plain and simple, join us for one of our weekend worship services!
