Some times the status quo needs to go

Church tends to use Scripture to support the status quo. The risen Jesus makes Scriptures come alive to challenge our complacency. Talk to the living Jesus. Then listen. He wants to have a conversation with you.

Biblical Christianity is about Christ supremacy–laying down our desires, feelings, & opinions, to follow and obey the living Jesus.

If we’re unwilling to let the living Jesus override our desires and opinions and replace them with His, we’re carnal, not Spirit-led. The risen Jesus has shown me that any evil I see in humanity is also to some degree, lurking in me. Romans 7:18.

The foundation of biblically Christianity is spiritual revelation that comes thru inner interaction with the risen Jesus. It isn’t just a “decision for Christ.”

The risen Jesus and sin can’t live peaceably within you. One or the other gets the upper hand. Saying we love God, if we hate others, makes us a liar. Saying we have no sin, does too. 1 John 4:20 and 1 John 1:8.

Follow the stimulus of the Holy Spirit. Let God’s fire burn within you and direct you daily.

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
