Without Jesus being active in the heart, Christianity can be boring

Let the living Jesus do His heart-work in you. Then you’ll begin to overflow with healing and joy.

When I’m comfortable I tend to trust my own effort; when I’m uncomfortable, Jesus. Being uncomfortable can make me defensive or make me grow, but not at the same time.

Truth is often uncomfortable and that can make it very hard to see. If you’re uncomfortable with ideas or people, maybe they have something to teach you.

Christ-followers today need the brokenness and humility of the Beatitudes. The risen Jesus doesn’t depend on a political party or on religious meetings. He works directly in the human heart. When people wanted to make Jesus king by force, He hid from their political plans.

Politics works by pride, coercion, manipulation, and force. Jesus uses love and humility. Obedience to the living Jesus will bring healing to your hurting heart. Without an ongoing heart connection with the living Jesus, Christianity is boring.

Politics got you down? Surrender your life to the living Jesus. He’s got the answer, but an in the sky, religious Jesus doesn’t seem to help much!

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
