Conscience & Divine interference will take you to peace & joy

Without Divine interference, my life would be a wreck. The risen Jesus rescues me! Christ-followers let the living Jesus daily interfere with and disrupt their life. My best decision was to ask Jesus to continually interfere with my life.

We have a name for God’s interference in our life. It’s called “conscience.” The best instructor is the living Jesus working in and thru your conscience. To subdue and silence your conscience makes you dangerous to yourself and others.

If you’ll obey Jesus’ inner instruction, you’ll avoid much self-destruction. Some behaviors produce peace & joy; some don’t. Let Jesus show you the difference.

Thoughts, desires, and temptations constantly try to interfere with and disrupt the kingdom of God in your life. When you receive God’s forgiveness, guilt for your past has no right to torment you.

If you won’t protect your mind from harmful influences, you’ll be overcome by them. When you lie, you embrace evil as your ally.

If you won’t let the living Jesus daily interfere with your life, you’re only pretending to follow Him. If you want the risen Jesus to help you, you need to obey His instructions.

“Ambassadors for Christ,” no matter what country they’re in, live under and represent Christ’s government. 2 Corinthians 5:20. There’s too much foreign interference in the kingdom of God. Follow the living Jesus, not your own opinions, feelings and desires.

“The cares of this world” choke God’s word and make Christians unfruitful. Avoid anything that interferes with your relationship with the risen Jesus Christ. If we don’t have the right to kindly disagree with people, we don’t have any rights.

I love to gather for worship with no interferences to the free flow of God’s Spirit. Jesus, help me hear and obey when You interfere in my life today.

Christmas is about God interfering in the world. Too often we don’t want God to interfere with our Christmas plans.

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
