With a raise of hands, how any of us want to live simpler lives? OK, so I can’t see the number of hands that was hands, but I’m going to take a quick guess that it was a lot of you. I think we want to live simpler lives because we get so busy with everything that’s happening with us in the world. Work, school, jobs, etc., the list goes on with things we have in our lives that make it so busy. Maybe it’s time we take a moment and stop to smell the roses as the saying goes and just simplify our lives.

Pastor Wayne Cordeiro teaches us in this book through all kinds of examples and just knowledge how we can simplify our lives as CHristians so it doesn’t seem like we’re going going going every day all the time.

It’s like that title of the book – Jesus:Pure and Simple. We tend to make things seem a lot more difficult than they actually are. It’s like the scene in Blindside where Michael sees the picture of everyone eating at the table, and at thanksgiving everyone rushes to the tv to watch football, but where’s Michael in all of it? at the dinner table. We make the simplest things not so simple. It’s time that ¬†something changes.

We need to get back to the simplicity of things, and if that’s something that you want to do, I would encourage you to read this book.
