The now Jesus will wow you

Let the ever-present Jesus wow you now. The now Jesus is like the now air, yet we’re often unaware that He’s keeping us alive.

Let the risen Jesus out of the religious past. Free Him from the distant future. Now! You won’t find the now Jesus by rummaging thru the past or hoping for the future. The place to follow the living Jesus isn’t the past or the future. It’s the now.

Jesus–when His story becomes present day reality, not just history, life exudes joy. The reality of Jesus is expressed much better by His presence than by any sermon. To exchange the ceremonial Jesus for the now Jesus is to revolutionize your life.

In a moment, the now Jesus became the focus of my life and has wowed me ever since. I love spending the moments of my life with the now Jesus. Looking to Jesus shouldn’t just be an “end-of-life” measure but our daily joy!

The now Jesus was with me then and will be when, and will be all the nows between. Study the past Jesus and the future Jesus, but love, adore, and obey the now Jesus!

When I was discouraged, the now Jesus kept me going! When I was mistreated, the now Jesus helped me forgive. When I was tormented by guilt and bondage, the now Jesus forgave me and set me free. When sadness tried to consume me, the now Jesus replaced it with joy.

When pride raised me up, the now Jesus showed me my desperate need for His grace. When fear came near, the now Jesus flooded me with hope and peace. When I disagreed with people, the now Jesus gave me heart-felt love for them. What’s the now Jesus done in your life?

The less aware Christians are of the living Jesus, the more we want religious forms. Church (and Christianity) can get boring, if you’re out of touch with the now Jesus. Perhaps the structured-Sunday-morning-Jesus has blurred our vision of the now Jesus. Too many Christians want to hear what Jesus has said to preachers, but not what He is saying to them now.

The now Jesus will disrupt your present. The past Jesus is easier to ignore. How we need the now Jesus today! If Christians would listen to and obey the now Jesus, we’d all be on the same page. When kindness leaves, the now Jesus grieves.

When Christianity is separated from honesty, humility, and holiness, it becomes a show instead of a lifestyle. Grace is empowerment to live a godly lifestyle, not an excuse not to. To be content, continually implement faith.

Wow! The now Jesus is POWerful. He’s my Supernatural Hero! When’s the best time to connect with the now Jesus? Right n _ _. There’s no waiting list to encounter the now Jesus. He’s ready when you are.

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
