We are living in a complex world! Sin complicates everything it touches and only the truth of Christ can return us to simplicity. Today we begin a new study on Enjoying the Journey. This brief series will examine the powerful phrase found often in Scripture: “one thing.” What is the one thing God is trying to teach you right now?

The devil and the flesh make life so complicated. The Lord cuts through all of that…

Christ brings simplicity. “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” (2 Corinthians 11:3).

Christians are to live simple lives. “For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward” (2 Corinthians 1:12).

Repeatedly we are told in God’s Word that we are to be “single” (Matthew 6:22; Luke 11:34; Acts 2:46; Ephesians 6:5; Colossians 3:22). This does not mean unmarried! It is singleness as opposed to a double heart and life (James 1:8, 4:8). Simplicity. Singleness. One thing.

I hope you will join us today and over the next few days as we look at this divine emphasis. May God bring His beautiful simplicity to your life in these complex times.
