Too many Christians have been trained for spiritual inaction

Christianity is meant to be implemented, not circumvented by political venting. It has been over-taught and under-implemented. Too many Christians have been trained for spiritual inaction, not for daily obeying the now Jesus. However, God’s grace was never meant to replace Spirit-led action

Grace isn’t a call to Christian inaction. It’s the power to daily obey the now Jesus!

To claim Christianity, but not live by Christian character and principles, is to create a work of fiction. Christianity’s the lifestyle of pursuing righteousness, love and the now Jesus. (See Matthew 6:33.)

Christians with no strategy for obeying the now Jesus, easily get sidetracked. Too often Christianity hasn’t been implemented, but substituted by human strategy. Traditional church tends to focus on proclamation, but ignore Gospel implementation. Too often church is a sermonic lecture that goes unimplemented by the listeners

The Bible’s a handbook for implementation, not a fairy tale for adoration. Biblical Christianity’s not about fans in the stands, but kind boots on the ground.

Here’s an example of information without implementation: People know that Jesus said, “Love your enemies,” and “Bless those who curse you.” Few do it. Kindness is a great idea. Implement Christian kindness today!

The “way” to implement early Christianity is by continual surrender to the now Jesus.

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
