Church is changing. What's it gonna be like?

Church may shut down, but not the risen Jesus. Daily obeying Him is the key to inner peace.

If you have trouble being close to God when church services are closed, maybe you’ve been too dependent on a religious program.

Perhaps the best way to have church at home is to go “on line” with the living Jesus, instead of with a preacher. People who have worshipped in interactive, participatory ekklesia gatherings know how to meet at home without a preacher’s sermon. Perhaps your spiritual breakthrough of healing and deliverance isn’t going to happen in church, but in your home.

People often don’t realize they’re spiritually asleep until something alarming wakes them up to the reality of invisible things. The world is experiencing a wakeup call. It’s time to turn around and surrender to the living Jesus. If people would pursue the living Jesus with the same zeal they go after toilet paper, they’d be seeing mighty miracles.

Faithful pastors, right now people may not need another sermon. They do need someone to phone them and pray with them individually. When organizing replaced the fire of the Holy Spirit, the ancient ekklesia turned into church. Make church ekklesia again!

You don’t have to get out of your house to connect with the risen Jesus. He wants you to be His house. I think Jesus likes small “church.” He promised to be wherever “two or three” gather in His name. (Matthew 18:29.) When everything’s shut down, God’s not.

When nature creates pain, the supernatural Jesus offers to comfort, to strengthen, and to guide. Why not let Him?

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
