Christianity without love (heart-connection) is counterfeit.

Christianity’s about
Heart connection
With God
And with people.

Without love, there’s no heart-connection with God. God is love! A heart, disconnected from God, hardens.

When people establish and maintain heart-connection with God, love continually flows thru them. Every time we speak or act without love, it reveals a break in our heart-connection with God.

The closer I get to the living Jesus, the more I love everybody. After all, everybody we encounter is somebody Jesus loves. People who haven’t offended you don’t need your forgiveness. Give it to those who need it. The harder people are to get along with, the greater their need for kindness.

Hurtful words don’t help anybody. Speak the truth with humility, caring, and compassion. Christianity without love is counterfeit.

“Abide in the vine,” means: Stay continually heart-connected with the living Jesus. Life’s tough, but following the living Jesus can prevent the hardening of your heart. When “Christ in you” continually distracts you from your circumstances, you’re not far from glory of God.

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
