This dynamic best seller is a fire starter!

Communication is a form of creation. Words paint images. Read the Bible and let the words God spoke in the past paint your heart today. Much in the Bible I don’t understand, but the parts I do understand have transformed my heart. God spoke and showed me Light!

God spoke and created the universe. Read His words in the Bible and see what He creates in you! When God’s word is heard in human hearts, it heals hurts and hails hope! If you read the Bible with an open heart, sooner or later it will release a spark that will ignite you with spiritual fire.

Creation is a form of communication. “The heavens declare the glory of God.” (Psalm 19:1) Are you listening? Ignoring God’s communication disrupts His create action in your life. However, hearing His communication will fill the void in your heart. Listen.

I’ve never understood how, but my heart sparkles with insight when I read the Bible. Of all the media I’ve allowed in my mind, one outlet has inspired & helped me more than all the rest–the Bible.

“Prophets…spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.” Reading them in the Bible, the Spirit carries me!

The ongoing reception of Christ, the living Word, changes your perception and overcomes deception. If Christ isn’t the most exciting thing in your life, you’ve not yet seen Him as He really is!

Early Christianity was powerful and exciting. If your faith is boring, you’ve accepted a substitute.

Can sermons and programs overshadow the risen Jesus and make it difficult for church attendees to fully behold Him? Yes. That has happened in churches all across the Western world.

When church creates complacency and passivity, it’s being inconsistent with biblical Christianity. When church loses the momentum of the Spirit, it has to be organized, programmed, and run as a structured meeting.

Church is in decline in the West, so what do we have to lose by trying a fresh, biblical way of church? Try 1 Corinthians 14:26. Why should that open, Spirit-led sharing of be seen as a threat by institutional churches? If it was good enough for Paul, it’s should be good enough for us!

There’s no need for God to love you more. His love is infinite. However, perhaps you need to love Him more! God loves you and there’s plenty you can do to love God more! Do it now!

If Christianity is a myth, forget it. If it’s true, pursue it with all your might. Just don’t be half-hearted about it.

If something’s not working in your life (or in your church) to make you peaceful and joyous, stop thinking and/or doing it! Currents of thought don’t just flow through your mind, but take you places. Only follow those that are going where you want to be. Much anxiety, discouragement, and guilt is produced by being out of sync with your conscience. To feel fine, realign!


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 @
