January 5 – The Simple Truth & Quiche

John 3:36 (nirv)

Anyone who believes in the Son has eternal life. Anyone who does not believe in the Son will not have life. God’s anger remains on them.

Read

I overcomplicate nearly everything. And I know it’s not just me; as a society, I think we tend to do this a lot. Believers and non-believers everywhere are debating the Word of God like they’re running for the next presidential election. There are countless conversations and arguments around specific sins, behaviors, and beliefs.

Of course I believe that we’re called to live Christ-like lives. But I also believe that there’s a reason this verse is written so simply; why it’s so easy to understand. There are some truths that we’re meant to know without a shadow of a doubt, without a single question; truths that aren’t debatable – this is one of them.

Just look the first sentence of this verse: “Anyone who believes in the Son has eternal life”. What if it were that simple? What if we saw this scripture as absolute truth? Because it is. So often, we get swept up in the secondary details of being a Believer, and we forget about the Message that should always be priority.

It’s really easy for me to focus on my sins and start to forget about the simplicity of this truth. But this scripture is as true and as easy to understand as 2+2=4. When we see an equation like 2+2, we don’t try to use calculus to solve it. So why are we as Believers trying to debate and apply high level theology to this simple truth? I think we often forget that God didn’t design salvation as a puzzle or a brain teaser. Jesus came to give life freely, not to make us jump through hoops and earn it (which is impossible – believe me, I’ve tried!).

I think knowing and learning about God’s Word is incredibly important and useful, but I also hope that as the Church, we can see and share this scripture for exactly what it is; a simple, incredibly powerful truth. Those who believe in Jesus are saved. Period. I think we owe it to ourselves, others in the church, and most importantly, those outside the church, to live securely in that. 

Write

Do you believe in this simple, yet powerful truth? Have you accepted Jesus to come into your heart and freely give you the gift of eternal life? If you have, spend some time reflecting and journaling about when you became a Believer. If you have not, use this time to reflect on what’s holding you back from making that decision and compare it with today’s scripture. Does this scripture change your feelings about the life that Jesus wants for you?

Pray

For someone in your life who hasn’t yet accepted the love of Jesus into his/her heart. If this person is you, pray for complete clarity of God’s truth today.

Tips & Tools

This quiche can be sliced into as many pieces as you’d like, but if it’s divided into fourths, each piece will be around 260 calories. If it’s divided into sixths, each piece will be around 180 calories. For this recipe, I used the breakfast chicken sausage and the Chèvre with Honey goat’s milk cheese – both from Trader Joes. Calorie count will vary depending on brands used.

If you don’t have a good pie dish, I think it’s time to get one! You can use these for so much more than pies! Obviously, quiche is a great example – but I also use my pie dish to make chicken nachos and baked pasta dishes.
