Think outside yourself!

It ain’t over till you quit praying over it. Believe in God. Your self will let you down. Keep your eyes on the wise, not on the foolish. Let Jesus lead you from the mundane to the marvelous in your life! Think outside yourself!

If you keep doing and thinking the same things, you’ll never get different results. When disappoints pounce, let God give you bounce!

Persistent prayer can take you beyond excuses into the power & presence of God! Pray large & let your worries be small. Pray, worship, and pursue Jesus outside your comfort zone.

When the going gets tough & faith seems to falter; passionately pursue Jesus. You don’t have to do everything. Give up & let God do something!

Discipling isn’t filling minds with religious information. It’s filling hearts with Christ’s fire! Do the next Spirit-led thing.

Freedom gives us choice. We can follow & obey Jesus or we can do our own thing.

I love how Jesus referred to the Holy Spirit as inner rivers & I love to let them flow. Through Christ we can continually experience an inner strength that’s not our own.

Jesus sends a friend request to every human heart. We can accept or ignore it.

Paul describes Christianity as: “His working, which works in me mightily.” (Col. 1:29) Early Christianity was vibrant, spontaneous, life-transforming, & world-changing.

Faith often starts with a single prayer. Why not say one now?

Let the Holy Spirit
Be in control
Freely flowing
In your soul!

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @
