Perceiving God

Without depth perception we spend our life, caught up in shallow superficialities. The fact that you’re aware of your thoughts shows you can perceive intangibles. You can use that ability to hear the living God. Positive, helpful, and creative ideas will form in your mind if you clear the clutter, make room for them, and notice their appearing.

As humans, we have internal means of perception (we often ignore) that can perceive ideas, concepts, and God. Intangibles are powerful–hope, love, joy, encouragement–but the greatest intangible is the living God!

I’m amazed that people who deny God because they can’t logically prove Him, don’t deny their consciousness for the same reason. If people don’t demand logical proof they are conscious, but believe their experience, I can believe my experiences with God. Billions of people perceive the reality of God and there is nothing in nature to conflict with that perception.

Although we can’t see our thoughts, we continually experience them. Although I can’t see Jesus, I continually experience Him. The direct perception of the living Jesus is much more powerful than any arguments for or against His resurrection.

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
