Daily Share- He makes it simple.
“Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good.”
Romans 12:21 NLT
If there’s one thing I so appreciate about the Lord it’s that when dealing with humanity He makes it simple. There aren’t many simple things in this life at all really. Life isn’t simple. In fact, we have to work and strive and guess and take chances and hope for the best. Until we meet Jesus. He makes it simple.
He took away any excuse not to be forgiven. He didn’t make us take the punishment for our sins before He would forgive us. He didn’t make us be humiliated in front of the world for what we’ve done before He would forgive us. No not at all. He took the punishment, suffered the shame, and finally died so that we could be forgiven.
So if the Lord went to such great lengths to make things simple for us, how is it we try and make this thing so hard? He leaves us with simple commandments. A few are to Show His love to all men in all that you do. Glorify Him with your life. And this simple rule, don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good.
God makes it simple, the sinful flesh makes it hard. One thing we are taught in our church so very often is that the best way to avoid sin is to always be doing good. If you keep your mind under spiritual control, focused on the will of God in your life, this becomes easier and easier. God even makes that easy. He said when He went away He wouldn’t leave us comfortless but He would send His spirit as a comforter for us. He said the spirit would lead us and guide us into all truth. The spirit equips us to be able to do all that God has asked of us. How much easier can it get? Everything He asks us to do, He also gives us the tools to do it.
So often times I’ve been guilty of using excuses for why I just can’t do this or just cant get that down pat in my life. In reality He’s already given me everything I need to conquer evil in my life by giving me everything I need to do good in this life.
He makes it simple. Let’s do our part and make him proud.❤️
