Are your spiritual notifications turned on?

When it comes to God’s voice, it’s easy to have your notifications turned off. Try not to do that. Sin is what pushes the “power off” button in your spiritual life. Pride also breaks our connection to God’s power. “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”

When Jesus is living inside of you, He’ll guide you thru what you’re going thru. The gifts of the Spirit function in an intuitive way (inwardly prompted), instead of an institutional way (externally controlled).

If we are unwilling to listen to and be guided by the risen Jesus, perhaps our allegiance to Him is only verbal. Christians are called to make the kingdom of God their first priority–to seek God’s supernatural power and authority over man’s. Christians are called to “walk in the light” — to seek truth, humility, healing, and reconciliation, more than positional power.

If you presume yourself to innocent, you’ll falsely believe you have no need to accept and receive Christ’s forgiveness. Heaven’s not for the innocent, but for the guilty who have been willing to receive Christ’s forgiveness and deliverance.

Christians are called to be examples of God’s supernatural ability to manifest the character of Jesus in and thru ordinary people. Perhaps Christians could gather for a “new wine” tasting, until everyone present is under the influence of the Holy Spirit.

Before you “follow your heart,” make sure God is guiding it and it’s not on a rebellious rampage. Without love, religion can be cruel. Examples of that are easy to find. However, when Christians connect around the risen Jesus, their differences fade in His glorious presence.

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 @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
