The simple truth about Christianity

To know the way of Christ…and to go the way of Christ
A new life in the Spirit doesn’t reflect the old life of carnality anymore
To have a new nature; to live in the new nature; and not show the old nature anymore
To walk in the light as He is in the light…not in darkness
A Christian brings honor to God and doesn’t live in dishonor
The power of God’s Grace keeps man from living in disgrace

The simple truth about Christianity requires belief in Christ and obedience to His Divine presence. Don’t be deceived into believing that God blinks His eyes at sin and disobedience. He doesn’t. A child of God doesn’t live like a child of the Devil. A child of God “knows right” and “does right” because he’s born of the Spirit. The Spirit of God shows the believing soul how to act and behave. It’s simple, plain and simple…without complication. Wrongdoing doesn’t fit into the a right life. Sin doesn’t fit into the holy life. Darkness doesn’t fit into the believer’s walk in the light.

The best life anyone can ever have on this side of Heaven is a life right in the eyes of God. It’s called faithfulness to Christ. Plain and simple truth. What’s wrong with living right? Nothing. What’s right about living right? Everything.

Sin is deceptive. False teaching is misleading. Away with confusion. People don’t have to be mixed up when it comes to right and holy living. The Bible never condones sin. The Bible condemns sin. Christ was made sin who knew no sin that we might be made the righteousness of god in Him. He bore our sins. His death justifies the sinner. His blood forgives and cleanses man from sin. His resurrection gives us life in the Spirit. A new life and a new standard of living by His Spirit.

The simple blessing is that Christians are morally changed by the Grace of God. The simple Christian life is new because the heart is freed from the bondage of sin. Consciousness to the presence of Christ allows man to be subject to Christ’s authority. That’s the simplicity of Christ. Plain and simple…without complication or confusion caused from human intellect. No reasoning required to be a Christian. Just belief in a Savior! Forgiveness is found and experienced. Walking in the Spirit is not walking in the flesh. If any man is in Christ “old things pass away”…It’s simple and true.

A new life in the Spirit doesn’t reflect the old life of carnality anymore…old things passed away

Prove what is acceptable to the Lord! It’s simple! It’s called Christianity in the beauties of holiness! Be ye holy as I am holy…thus sayeth the Lord!

About rickroehm

Since 1988 I’ve been writing and doing service for the Lord. It all began in 1987 after a personal walk began with the Lord. This personal walk with the Lord I speak of turned into extensive Bible studies and later evolved into blogging in early 2000. At present I write, author, and publish several different sites on the Internet. My Blogs contain a vast library of Theological writings, teaching videos, and preaching audios that currently go around the globe for the cause of Christ. I write at Christian Blessings on Wordpress, Holy Hubert Lindsey Group on Facebook, Churches on Trial at Google, publish You Tube videos, record sermons at holy.sermon.net, etc. I also pastor a Church called the Upper Room in Williamsburg, Ohio . My secular Blog called Southwestern Ohio Fishing on Wordpress is where I write about experiences with my son and fishing partner Chad where we together enjoy Mother Nature’s beauty mixed with Father God’s creation. At Southwestern Ohio Fishing Blog I also publish favorite recipes for those who enjoy eating and cooking as much as this writer does. Thanks for sharing your time and life with this writer at the Blogs. Here's more access to my ministry and fishing Blog if you'd care to check them out further.

    Brother Rick, how very right you are to proclaim that the Christian is instructed to walk in the Spirit, not in the flesh.

  2. Either Christ is Lord *OF* all – or He is not Lord *AT* all.

    It is only simple if Jesus Christ is truly Lord of your life. So let Him be. Amen.
