Self-assembly–putting yourself together with God’s help

You can assemble thoughts and ideas in ways that magnify hope. Your life will eventually be mastered by whatever your mind continually magnifies.

Disappointments are less disappointing if you refuse to let your mind magnify them. If you would refuse to mentally magnify your problems, they wouldn’t seem so loomingly large.

Our perspective molds our perception. Step into another person’s viewpoint and you’ll understand why he thinks the way he does.

Pride exalts self. Humility embraces mercy. Our society needs more compassionate, mental analysis and fewer angry, emotional justifications. The more ways you can see an issue, the less you feel you feel a need to defend one point of view. What’s behind your eyes and stored in your brain and in your heart, often determines what you see, more that what’s directly in front of your eyes.

Magnify the Son of God in your soul and you will experience spiritual fire. Christians are called to “Rejoice in the Lord always,” not to rejoice in politics.

The Bible shows Christianity was never intended to be continually focused on one man talking. It’s full of “one another” commands.

Official Christianity is often superficial and artificial. Initial Christianity was uncontainable fire in the soul.

Let your soul
Hear Jesus speaking
And His words
Will make you whole.

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
