Reconsider what life’s about . . .

Christian complacency can cause us to be spiritually apathetic while presuming an entitled ticket to Heaven. In the Bible I find language that lifts — words that escort my heart away from complacency and to vibrant hope. In this time of economic disruptions and life-threatening interruptions, perhaps it’s time to reconsider what life’s about.

There’s no reason to stay sunk in self, when Christ calls you to soar in the Holy Spirit. Freedom from self-focus is one of the greatest freedoms there is. It’s an internal shift, not an external gift.

People say, “Find yourself,” “Forgive yourself,” “Be true to yourself,” but Jesus says, “Deny yourself.”

Some thoughts enslave; others liberate. On which do you concentrate?

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
