The Simplicity of Perfection

6 Oct

The Simplicity of Perfection…

Einstein saw his Theory of Relativity not as complicated, but simple. He believed that the simple and beautiful would be the truth.

That is true of God. Sin is complicated. Righteousness is simple. Lies are complex; truth is simple. God isn’t complicated, nor is Jesus or salvation. God is infinite, but simple. Jesus’s love is deep, but simple.

Salvation is endless, but simple. In Hebrew, perfection is “tamim,” but it also means simple. It speaks of the Passover Lamb who was without blemish. Perfect faith is not complicated, it’s simple.

We get into complicated systems, thoughts and emotions, but it’s not of God. The perfect heart is not a complicated heart, it’s a simple heart, loving and joyful. The perfect subject and focus is not complicated, but a simple one. The focus is God.

Seek good, not evil, that you may live.
Then the Lord God Almighty will be with you,
just as you say he is. Hate evil, love good; maintain justice in the courts. Perhaps the Lord God Almighty will have mercy on the remnant of Joseph. Amos 5:14-15

Come back to the simplicity of your faith, my friend, to God, the simplicity of life in God. You don’t need complicated issues. You need the love of God. He is perfect, and it’s that simple.

Take steps to simplify your life today, find your joy at the feet of Jesus and remove those things that take away from His presence.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
