A head full of theology can be spiritually dead

Christian spiritual formation
Requires inner transformation,
Not just biblical information.

Learning doctrine in our head, we can still be spiritually dead. We need to let God’s fire continually burn in our heart!

Christians can be taught by Jesus — instructed directly by the Good Shepherd whose sheep hear His voice. When you allow Jesus to lead you from the inside out, it’s glorious. (“Christ in you, the hope of glory.)

Too often Christians only learn info about God rather than being directly led by His Spirit. To be “led by the Spirit,” you have to learn to listen to the Spirit, not just to preachers.

A self-justified heart frequently pats itself on the back. Then it allows pride to keep it away from intimacy with God.

Preachers disagree.
I need Jesus,
The living Word,
To teach me.

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
