Jesus ain’t no metaphor

Christ is not a metaphor to illustrate spiritual truth. He’s the door to reality. Enter in!

Jesus isn’t just an example of how to live, or a sample of what Heaven’s like. He’s more than ample to live in and through you now! Wow!

Jesus is your inner teacher. Are you accepting His insights and completing His assignments every day? Reaching for God through reasoning results in self-righteousness.

Responding to God with humble repentance releases revelation. Perhaps Christianity that doesn’t produce a supernatural lifestyle of Christ-likeness is a misnomer. Full-heart surrender to Jesus will bring you so much closer to God than all the sermons you can ever hear.

Testimonies about Jesus have much more power than testimonies about political investigations. Tell what He’s done in your life!

When Christ is outside of you, He’s a theory. When you let Him freely live inside you, He’s a generator, electrifying your life!

Identity? When you personally encounter the risen Jesus, the question, “Who am I?” becomes meaningless.

It’s easy to think you are a good person until you actually try to be good 100% of the time. Then the not-so-good rises up. All people are a mixture of good and bad, including, your heroes, your enemies, and you.

Why would you want to love your enemies? You wouldn’t! That’s why it takes so much courage and strength to obey Jesus and do it.

Your mind can be a torrent of torment or a source of serenity. Program it well.

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 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 in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
