It’s sooooo complex!

As I read on many Christian blogs around the net, this Christian faith stuff is way too complicated for the average Joe and Mary on the street. How in the world would we ever figure it out if it weren’t for the plethora of books telling us everything that Day 194 (11/26/07)we need to do, think, or feel?

 Are some of those books helpful? Yes, they can be.

But many of them just muck up the clear waters of a crystal clear message…’Christ died for sinners.’

“At the right time, Christ died for the ungodly.” Are you ungodly?  I hope so…for then He died for you.

Personally, I have done much damage, and continue to do damage, not only in my own life but more painfully, in the lives of others.  I have not loved God with my whole heart and I have not loved my neighbor as myself.

But the Lord has had mercy on me, just has he has had on you. He forgives my sin and cleanses me daily, in the waters of my baptism (which I revisit daily) and in the sacrament of the altar, and in the hearing of His beautiful promises, spoken to me by the poor words of the preacher.

“Your sins are forgive for Jesus’ sake”!



Life giving.

And it’s not very complicated. Not complicated at all.
