Christian formality? Or flowing with Jesus?

Prayers that you allow
To spontaneously flow,
With words from deep within,
Will connect your heart with God.

Let go and let God flow
From deep within you.
“Quench not the Spirit.”

Like a river, the living Jesus will carry you where He’s going, but only if you surrender to His inner flowing. Christianity built on the living, present Jesus, looks different than Christianity built only on the historic Jesus.

It’s time for Christianity to let formality go and let Christ’s joy flow. The living Jesus often releases from within me, a playful flow of joy. He continually enthralls me.

The living Jesus wants to freely flow from deep within you. All you need to do is to not hold Him back. I find that the symphony of my life flows better when I let the living Jesus be the conductor.

Like a field of grass 
Flowing with the wind, 
And an eagle soaring
In its rising current, 
Let the living Jesus move you 
With His inner wind 
And raise you up 
To soar with Him.

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
