The immanence of the living Jesus

If you refuse to hear and obey the living Jesus, hearing a man preach about Him won’t do you much good. However, directly experiencing the immanence of Jesus, releases awe, healing, and ardent celebration. (If you get caught up in aporia, you miss out on euphoria.)

If you don’t know the living Jesus as the great transforming Presence in your life, you’ve missed the point of Christianity. Much Christianity is missing the immanence of the living Jesus. Jesus isn’t an abstract principle but a living Person who wants to interact with you. Not only is Jesus sovereign and eminent, He wants to live in you and be immanent.

When Jesus proclaimed, “The kingdom of God is at hand,” He announced His immanence. “Christ in you–daily experiencing that reality is the immanence of the risen Jesus.

When you let the living Jesus actively work in your heart and mind, that’s immanence. Within myself, I experience the living Jesus as strongly as I experience my own consciousness. Let Emmanuel (“God with us”) demonstrate His immanence in your daily life.

Many Christians have never seen the living Jesus lead even one meeting without a preacher or a program. The living Jesus wants to make the kingdom of God an imminent reality, not a distant dream, talked about by preachers.

To help you experience Christ as immanent, check out my two handbooks to Christ in you: Beyond Church Ekklesia and The Joy Of Early Christianity. Thank 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
