Backwards Christianity puts self first

Too many Christians ignore the living Jesus and focus on self. That’s backwards.

My way is seldom the high way. When I go low, Jesus calls me high.

Self is deceptive. When you align with self you miss much reality. Look beyond self.

Jesus often contradicts my will and leads me to go His way instead of mine. Jesus helps me sort thru my feelings and thoughts and then throw out the harmful ones.

People who think that they don’t need Jesus aren’t open to experiencing His reality. Who you let govern your life is vital to your mental health. Choose Jesus over self.

If you hate all the people who think and/or do evil, there’ll be no one left to love. When you really “know yourself,” you know you need mercy, forgiveness, and healing.

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
