We tend to be complicated.
God’s heart for us is simple. He loves us and wants us to be free.
As born again Christians we only have two traps to avoid really – the flesh and legalism.
The “way of the cross” is the only path that leads me safely between these two pits. The Holy Spirit helps us walk this road.
Walking the narrow road, being lead by the Holy Spirit is a simple summary of Christian life. It’s not complicated.
It’s the only way to reach our goal of being changed, bit by bit, so that the reality of my attitude of heart resembles Jesus.
The Apostle Paul summed up so much when he said…
“Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith”1 Timothy 1:5
There’s only one way to this place – the road of the cross.
All my bible knowledge, Greek and Hebrew can’t help me if I’m not willing to walk this simple road. In fact nothing can and it all begins in our homes.
