I used to feel inferior because I wasn’t a complicated person. I’ve never had lobster or flown overseas. I don’t use big words and I’ve never enjoyed reading the King James Version of the Bible. I’m a girl that likes well done hamburgers who would still probably eat strawberries from the garden.
I don’t know the right verses to say word for word or the correct place in the Bible to find it. I’m pretty sure I know, but never certain.
I don’t own Prada and I don’t drive a Lexus. My joke is I had to return to the thrift store to buy my own pants back.
This picture is simple to me. Church and America. Remember the commercial from the 80′s? Baseball, apple pie and Chevrolet? That’s me.
Maybe that’s you, too. But perhaps you think you’re missing out because God is complicated and He wouldn’t be interested in you. Oh, have I got news for you.
He’s so simple we make it complicated. He loves us. He sent His Son, Jesus, to Earth to live as man. A perfect man who never sinned. He was crucified for us, for love, simple, pure love, with your beautiful face on His mind when He took the nails. He died, and three days later was resurrected. He is in heaven, and He will be back. When? Don’t let anyone tell you they know.
Not even Jesus knows.
It’s that simple.
He’s coming back as King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and He’s coming back for His Kids. The ones who felt too simple but trusted Him anyway, and the complicated ones with luggage of issues.
Perhaps you are a profound sort, many degrees and titles next to your name. You want proof and none of this simple faith stuff. Well, He’s got your back on that, too. Scientists are finding faith truths in quantum physics. Muslims are turning to Christ by the thousands each day because Jesus is showing up. For real. It boggles the mind, but it is happening. Dead people are coming back to life. Tumors are shrinking simply by people praying in the name of Jesus. There are doctor reports and x rays, as well as verbal witnesses.
Me? It’s easier for me to trust the Bible and take God at His Word. After all, it’s stood the test of time no matter how many ways and times the message and the messengers have tried to be extinguished. I like simple statements–like the one where God made the ark, man made the Titanic.
I like my pictures with sunshine, churches, and American flags.
I love my future knowing it will be in heaven with Jesus.
It’s that simple.
Do you know Him?
