Who’s there (walking to Emmaus)?

Who's there?

Two disciples walked 
And talked 
With Jesus, 
On the way 
To Emmaus, 
Unaware 
That He was there. 
And still today, 
Many Christians 
Live that way.
The Emmaus 5 phases of becoming aware of Jesus 

1) Informed unawareness; 
2) Awakening awareness; 
3) Pursuing more; 
4) An aha moment of awareness; 
5) Overflowing awareness.

Insights:

Western Christianity seems to be based on informed unawareness, knowing about Jesus but not being aware of His presence.

When something is awakening your heart to the conscious awareness of Jesus, stay with it. Don’t let it fade away.

In a moment of awareness, Jesus suddenly shifts from information to transformation and ongoing saturation with inspiration.

Normal Christianity is to continually overflow with the consciousness awareness of the presence of Jesus. Anything else is subpar.

Informed unawareness of Jesus tends to be boring and legalistic. Overflowing awareness of Him is “joy unspeakable and full of glory.”

Continual, conscious awareness of the One who laid down His life on the Cross will empower you to walk in joy and victory to the mountain top of God’s glory!

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
