7 short poems about Jesus being alive

Spiritual Lockdown 
Religious people wanted Jesus 
Cruelly killed 
And then sealed 
In a guarded tomb. 
They got what they wanted 
For a weekend, 
But many act 
As if He's still there. 
It's time to live like 
Jesus is living!
Weekend Stay
Jesus had a weekend stay 
In a garden tomb, 
But then He rose and got away. 
Now He's everywhere.
Yet to this day,
Many Christians live
Like He's still entombed there.
Easter Song
Borrowed tomb,
But not for long,
The Guest soon
Was gone.

Death Invader

Jesus died
To invade
The realm of death
And conquer it.

Religion often tries 
To decorate 
Jesus' empty tomb 
With words and ceremonies, 
Ignoring the amazing testimonies 
That He's alive 
In the 21st Century.
Tomb Time 
His tomb time is gone. 
Jesus is out of the box! 
Now roll away your heart's stone 
And let Him own 
You.
Make room! 
Let Jesus out 
Of the religious tomb. 
Prepare the way 
For Him to sway 
And control 
The way 
You live, 
24/7/365!

Jesus’ message: Everybody is somebody who matters!
Nobody’s insignificant. 

Too many Christians live their lives in between Good Friday and Easter. Jesus rose once, almost 2,000 years ago. He doesn’t rise every year.

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
