It's Simple, It's Jesus

Here is my sermon from July 6, the Sunday before beginning vacation. One of the things I repeat a couple of times is something to the effect of "It's just that simple. It's just that complicated." After hearing the sermon my wife had a couple of great analogies for this idea, both very similar. It's kind of like a magic trick. On the one hand when you look at it the trick seems very complicated, but when someone explains it to you, shows you the secret, it's often really quite simple. The other thing that is quite similar are those puzzle toys. You've probably seen them before.

These twisted metal contraptions appear nearly impossible. Yet the solution to them are usually quite simple, although not always all so obvious. Isn't our Christian walk kind of like that? It all really boils down to Jesus. It's just that simple, but it's also just that complicated.
