I like to keep things uncomplicated. If there is an easy way to do something, write something or say something, why would someone choose to make it difficult? This is one of my pet peeves.
I remember when my husband was doing masters-level work, and he handed me his textbook and said, "Read that first page out loud."
I took the book and began reading. About two paragraphs in, I tossed the book on the sofa and said, "Why? Why would anyone write like this? They are purposefully making it more complicated than it needs to be. It's wordy for no reason with complicated sentence structure. I simply don't get it. Don't they want to help their students soar?"
In the Bible, there is a verse that I love because it's uncomplicated with no hoops to jump through, nor steps to follow to perfection, and no endless list of does or don'ts. This verse says what it means and means what it says.
For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
And there you have it. Plainly said and simple to understand. It really takes all the ABC's and repeat-after-me out of the salvation message.
The price was high for our Lord and Savior, but He gives everyone an Easy Way in…Call On Him!
