Christicism–be a Christic

Jesus said, “Leap for joy,” but many Christians just creep along. We need more Christicism–first-hand, mystical encounters with the living Jesus. Christology is the study of Christ. Christian mysticism (Christicism) is experiencing Him. I experience mystical encouragement as Jesus speaks within me. I find that I am strongest when I’m weak enough to surrender to Jesus.

To be with the living Jesus and in awe of Him, is the most amazing form of prayer. Beholding Jesus dispels indifference and compels awe and obedience. Behold the Lamb of God! If Jesus never causes you to say “Aha!” you may have replaced Him with religion. Christ demystified is Christ denied.

A Christic (Christian mystic) is someone who continually listens to and obeys the risen Jesus. A Christic follows Jesus supernaturally, not just intellectually. Jesus didn’t teach concepts unrelated to daily reality. Follow Him daily, not religion. A Christic experiences and obeys the living Jesus for real.

Many people avoid mystical experiences with the living Jesus, because of fear. Much of modern Christianity has been demystified & emptied of awe, leaving a mere shell.

Too much Christianity demonstrates verbal proclamation, but behavioral denial. Demystified Christianity is often dull, but “Christ in you” is continual adventure. For admission into great joy, let the living Jesus lead your into daily mission.

Christians are called to live in a Christocracy–under the direct Kingship of Jesus. Do you?

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
