Long ago in a far away Galilee

To confine Jesus to long ago in far away Galilee is to miss out on His present day miracles. Church says that Jesus is risen, but then tends to burry Him in the distant past or exile Him to the distant future. People won’t believe that Jesus is alive and present if Christians live like He’s dead & gone.

Remembering Jesus in the past isn’t enough. Biblical Christianity is about experiencing Him in the present. A Jesus who is confined to the past or the future, doesn’t give people much hope for today.

If we don’t want to spend all day today with Jesus, we probably don’t really want to be with Him forever. If you feel like you don’t have enough stuff, but you do have enough of Jesus, you have life backwards.

Grace doesn’t force itself on the person who insists he needs no mercy, forgiveness, or help from God.


The light inside
Will be your guide
If not denied
By your pride.


You won against
400,000,000 to 1 odds
In the race
For your conception!

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!
