Keeping It Simple

“This is what the Church should be doing.”

Was the basic premise of the blog I read recently. They author was trying to explain, how the church has gotten off track, and in the first short paragraph he used these words…

Missional
Spirituality
Abstraction
Enlightenment
Rationalism
Reductionism
Utopianism
Consumerism
Programism

I don’t think it’s that complicated! It can’t be! How could you explain that to a pastor with the equivalent of a 3rd grade education in the up country of West Africa? Answer…You couldn’t.

I think God love the Simple

I think the purpose of God’s church and His plan for His people is simple. Simple people are the one’s He uses. So, it must be simple for the simple (Like me) to get it.

Love God with all you have
Love others with all you have
Help People..Find, Follow and Be Like Jesus
Now, if what you are doing is making that happen. Go back, and check how you are doing it, and change it. But don’t complicate it. Just feels like the simple God, gets lost in all that.

Just my view…From the simple spot!
