Jesus c3a — 1) aware of, 2) amazed by, & 3) attentive to

When you let your attention zoom in on and be continually captivated by the living Jesus, life is supernaturally transformed! Attentive listening to the living Jesus is the most powerful prayer.

Living in the presence of Jesus isn’t just something for the hereafter. It’s a glorious lifestyle for here and now! Overlooking everyday wonders, it’s easy to leave the living Jesus unnoticed. The Bible teaches that Jesus is ever-present, but too many Christians act like He’s never present.

The less my awareness of self and the more my awareness of the living Jesus, the more I’m filled with amazement and joy! If churches were testimony-focused, instead of sermon-focused, you’d be amazed at how ordinary people have experienced Jesus.

What do you call someone who is continually aware of, amazed by, and attentive to the living Jesus? If you’re not experiencing Jesus’ presence daily, perhaps it’s because you don’t want to.

Letting Jesus live in and thru you is far more powerful than merely learning about Him. Listen to the living Jesus, not to analyze what He says, but to be set free by His words of life! Jesus isn’t bound to top-down church domination. He can speak to you anytime and anywhere. Listen.

Martha complained about her sister, Mary’s focused attention on Jesus. He told her that Mary had chosen the one necessary thing. Anything that distracts a Christian’s focus from the living Jesus is a distraction.

A Jesus-c3a is
Someone who is
Continually aware of,
Amazed by and
Attentive to Jesus.

We can learn to recognize and respect the humanity in all people–to appreciate the common ground we all stand on.

I’m amazed by Jesus:
What He did in the past,
And what He’s doing in me.

The world is full of spiritual elephants in the room, clear indications of God’s reality that are overlooked and/or denied.

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
