Marvel is more than superheroes

Too many people have lost their marvels. Now they see their amazing life as drab and boring.

There’s so much to marvel at in life: nature, wisdom, technology, science, compassion, spirituality, the universe. It’s fun to find and appreciate the marvelous.

Don’t let your mind make the marvelous seem mundane. Wake up to its amazement.

Every human being is a marvel and carries a reflection of God’s image. Sometimes you have to look hard to find it, but it’s there.

Christians too often confuse Jesus with a program or a church service, instead of experiencing Him as the marvel that He is. Christians won’t experience the marvel of connecting heart-to-heart unless we listen to each other, yet church is set up so that we only listen to one man.

To marvel in the presence of God is much more powerful than trying to understand Him. When I read the Bible with an open heart, it makes me marvel and I don’t want to stop.

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!
