Forgetting to remember the splendor

Christians have forgotten 
How to meditate 
On God's splendor.
We've forgotten 
How to demonstrate 
The awesome presence 
Of the living Jesus.

We've forgotten 
To remember that:

The body of Christ 
Doesn't function 
But relationally. 
All the members 
Are supposed to 
Listen to Jesus, 
The living Head,  
So that we all can do 
What Christ 
Tells us to.

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.

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 @
