The Simplicity of Our Faith

John 11:40 (GNB), 2Corinthians 11:3 (KJV & GNB): Jesus said to
her, “Didn’t I tell you that you would see God’s glory if you believed?”
*But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his
subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is
in Christ. *I am afraid that your minds will be corrupted and that you
will abandon your full and pure devotion to Christ—in the same way
that Eve was deceived by the snake’s clever lies.

Various winds of doctrines will continue to blow from time to time to toss people who are not rooted in Christ to and fro, Ephesians 4:14-15. In Galatians 3:1-3 Apostle Paul said, O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?
What Jesus referred to as great faith was a man simply believing that Jesus’ Word could accomplish the equivalent of what His physical presence could accomplish, Matt.8:5-10. The same Centurion that asked Jesus to come to his house to heal his servant later sent a message imploring Jesus to simply speak the Word from where He was in order for his servant to be made whole. God is one with His Word and God does nothing without His Word, John 1:1 & 3. Do not allow anyone to twist God’s Word and make believing in God sound overly complicated and
difficult.
Continue to remain devoted to Christ and let your faith remain deeply rooted in Christ and in His Word. Allow the Word of Christ, which is the revelation about God’s Will for you in Christ, to dwell in your heart richly, Col.3:16. Your faith in Christ is what guarantees the manifestation of God’s power and glory in your life.

Prayer Focus: Tell God that your faith is in Christ and in His Word and that you will not allow anyone or anything to cause you to take your eyes off Christ and His Word.
