Jesus’ Resurrection is nothing to be lukewarm about

When I started hanging out with the risen Jesus, I found going to church to be a regression from my daily experience with Him. Church, like the Bible Pharisees, seems to see the living Jesus as a threat to the human control of religion.

Church services are designed for lukewarmness, not for holy passion and spiritual fire. I find testimony (what the living Jesus is doing) to be far more powerful than ceremony (what we do to commemorate Him).

Church has tamed the resurrection of Jesus by presenting it as an annual Sunday morning lecture, tradition, and sentimentalism. It’s time to let the risen Jesus take control all year long! His Resurrection is nothing to be lukewarm about.

It’s important to know Jesus, not just as a point of information, but by personally experiencing Him day by day. Do you regularly hang out with the resurrected Jesus?

Here’s my handbook on how to daily experience and enjoy the risen Jesus: The Joy Of Early Christianity.

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!
