Put Christ back in “ianity”

Churchianity’s been around for centuries. Now we have politicsianity. Let’s put Christ back in ianity. Christianity without love for all people, is counterfeit.

To keep the rust off of my trust in God, I have to put the living Jesus first! Love sees things differently than hate. Let the living Jesus give you eyes of love.

When human hopes totter, 
The sky seems to be falling, 
Yet "Christ in you," 
The insider Jesus,
Remains "the hope of glory."

Too many Christians are Christ-informed rather than Christ-formed. It’s much more important to be Spirit-led than to be preacher-fed. Romans 8:14. Religious structure, teaching, and organization, often pushes aside the living Jesus. The failure to perceive the living Jesus at work, motivates Christians to exert their own will.

Christianity is a way of life, not a Sunday morning religious session or a political persuasion. True Christianity is based on the perception of Jesus, not on our feelings and opinions.

Everything that happens works for my good. Trusting that Bible truth makes me happy. Grace enables repentance, God’s forgiveness, freedom from guilt, & surrender to Jesus.

Jesus spoke against hierarchy. He didn’t approve of a ranked ordering of people. Because the kingdom of God is invisible to physical eyes, it’s hard to resist giving our heart to a human government. The name I want on banners is Jesus!

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
