Jesus said His followers will experience Holy Spirit currents flowing from within them (John 7:38). I call that “Christricity.” The living Jesus is the voltage that powers my soul!
Life is wonderful when it’s humming with Christricity (even during difficult times). Christricity is shocking! It’s the living Jesus freely flowing from a human heart. Be a live wire, not a coiled up cable. Let Christ’s current flow from within you. Perhaps the reason more people today don’t find Christianity to be shocking, is that church operates at such a low voltage.
Religion too often pulls the plug on the living Jesus and substitutes sermons for His power and presence. However, a lecture about electricity can’t light anything up. A talk without power is words soon forgotten.
Modern Christianity is too often like a phone that’s lost its charge and the only charger is the presence of the living Jesus. Early Christians plugged into community (ekklesia) and helped one another stay charged with the world-shocking power of Christricity.
Christianity without Christricity is like a city (or a home) without electricity. The world needs people who will plug into the living Jesus and surrender their resistance to God’s power flow.
The human heart is designed to be an electric light blub, gloriously illuminated by free-flowing Christricity. A thousand sermons about Christ can’t compare with the shock and awe of experiencing the flowing of His presence within your heart. Your circuitry is wired for the risen Jesus. Experience the wonderful joy Christricity flowing within you.
Concerning Christricity (the living Jesus flowing from within), too many people who say they’re Christians, are non-conductors. When Christ’s current is flowing thru the electrical grid of your heart, many forces try to disconnect your Christricity. Turning on Christricity can switch you from human effort to the power of God. Sin is the circuit breaker that cuts off Christricity. It always blows a fuse.
A Christian without Christricity is experiencing a sever power outage. Any Christian whose Christricity has been disconnected, needs to plug into the presence of the risen Jesus and make some sparks! All screens are boring if we don’t keep them plugged in or charged up. Unplugged or uncharged Christianity is too.
Christricity is an amazing source of creativity. Plug into the power of Christricity and keep yourself fully charged with the presence of the risen Jesus. If you ever surrender its inner flow, it will transform your life. (“Christ in you, the hope of glory.”) The bill for Christricity was paid at the Cross.
The Holy Spirit is the high voltage transmission line for Christricity. For high voltage Christianity, read the Bible daily with an open heart, as you listen to and obey the promptings of the Holy Spirit.
Christricity makes the soul grow fonder of God and of people. It will light up your heart if you don’t short circuit it. “Quench not the Spirit.”
How’s your “current” relationship with Christ? Is the presence of the risen Jesus flowing thru you? Ecstatic Christricity is “joy unspeakable and full of glory.” Search: The Joy Of Early Christianity.
