When you begin to experience Jesus in the present tense, you won’t be so tense! To learn about Jesus is good, but it can’t compare to experiencing Him. Jesus is talking. His sheep hear His voice.
I believe in Jesus like I believe in gravity. Although I can’t see Him with my physical eyes, I continually feel His pull!
When worshipping Jesus captivates you, worship becomes 24/7/365! The kingdom of God comes when people gather to hear and do what Jesus says.
Anyone or anything that is between you and the risen Jesus, is out of place. When someone experiences the actual presence of Jesus, they are in awe, deeply moved, even stunned! We need Jesus, not religion.
The Pharisees focused on religious behaviors, but let their heart get hard. Jesus called them, “the blind leading the blind.” The witness of the Spirit — how we need to hear it! (See Romans 8:16.) Hearing a sermon is far different than hearing the living Jesus speak directly to your heart. Man-led religion can’t compare to a Spirit-led relationship with Jesus! A lifetime, Jesus trip is so much better than a religious script! (Search: The Joy Of Early Christianity book.)
I believe in
The water parter,
The Red Sea,
The Jordan River.
When there's no way,
He's the way maker.
