Good is good all the time; but we’re not!

God is good all the time; but we humans aren’t. Let’s love each other anyway. It would be nice if church offered on the job training in hearing & obeying Jesus.

Much of Jesus’ teaching can only be learned by doing it. You don’t learn how to love or forgive or testify or encourage or pray, from lectures. You learn those things by doing them.

Don’t be a lone ranger. Follow & obey the world’s greatest pastor–the risen Jesus. To begin to cooperate with the risen Jesus (who is working in your heart) is to experience indescribable peace & freedom. Rules & authority are inadequate substitutes for cooperation with the Holy Spirit.

The more we humbly express our love & our spiritual insights, the closer we get to God & to one another. Open, Spirit-led sharing releases amazing caring & the heart felt bearing of one another’s burdens.

When Christians meet to minister to one traininganother, they begin to experience the Holy Spirit’s on the job training. Holy Spirit led, interactive workshops, provide hands on training in living out Jesus’ teachings.

To hear to Jesus speaking through a group of His followers, humbly sharing their hearts, is to taste of Heaven.

People appreciate the gift of being able to share from their heart with others. The body of Christ is connected at the heart. Let’s take the time to experience & cultivate that deep connection with one another.

If you feel like you’re standing still, at least your still standing! Be encouraged and take a step in a positive direction.

Don’t get stuck in hurt. Get stuck in passion for Jesus! When you’re hurt & don’t understand, humbly stand “under God’s mighty hand so that in due time He may exalt you.” 1 Peter 5:6

Hurt is a call to find comfort and healing in Jesus. The echo of pain that pierces your heart will soon fade away, if it’s not amplified by anger.

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 @
