Today I would like to ask the question “what is the simplicity of faith?”
I believe this question is so relevant because of the complexity that we see all around us bogging so many souls down till they become stuck and are unable to move forward.
To understand “Simplicity of faith” we must understand that it does not denote any measure of being “shallow”, rather it speaks of the nature of our faith.
Simply put we are talking about a faith that walks in the Spirit with love from a pure heart, a clean conscience, and sincerity.
“Simplicity of faith” is had by those who walk in the Spirit by faith. Whoever walks in the simplicity of faith does not have to see before they go because they are led by the Holy Spirit and the word of God illuminates their steps. Therefore they walk with a mighty love that comes from a pure and undefiled heart, a conscience that is clear of any accusation of impure motives, and an earnest trust in the Living One who guides them.
Simplicity of faith receives with meekness the implanted word of God into the heart with joy and gladness for the salvation it brings!
The highest virtue of a simple faith is to “love God with all the heart, with all the soul, with all the mind, and with all the strength”- from such a perfect condition as this the faith of a child is able to walk in holiness to a degree that the greatest intellects and mightiest wills could never dream of!
The great philosophical minds sit around on leather couches debating what it means to “go and make disciples of Christ”, while those children of the faith lace up their shoes with gospel-readiness and go out to make disciples of Christ, being fully sufficient for the task because of Him who dwells in them!
Who has heard the living word of God speak and followed it with joy and gladness of heart? This one has simplicity of faith. And so walk, and so do, as those who walk by faith and who do by the power of the Holy Spirit! Amen!
