Feelings, when blindly followed, are dangerous

Feelings are frequently false. When blindly followed, they can fake you out while filling you with arrogance. Our anger often confuses and deceives us, but kindness can guide us to truth.

Beware of people who deceive people with false prophesies and angry conspiracy conjectures. If you catch someone deceiving you once — discern. Don’t let him burn you again.

Jesus’ rebuke of Peter applies to many of His followers today: “You do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.” To declare something without conclusive proof is hearsay and puts human concerns ahead of God’s great concern for truth and honesty.

The sign of Christianity isn’t church attendance, political views, or prideful slogans. It’s love. “The kingdom of God is within you,” so “the keys of the kingdom” enable you to lockdown or to unlock God’s character inside your heart.

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 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 in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
