Our thoughts & feelings produce many mirages

Life is full of mirages. The way things seem to your senses isn’t always the way they really are. Our consciousness contains both illusion and truth. It’s important to separate the two.

Be attentive to your inner self. You can greatly improve your life by observing your thoughts and feelings and working to improve them

The most ignored human right is the right to restrain and control your own impulses, desires, thoughts, and feelings. You have the ability to choose to either accept or resist any thought or feeling that comes to your awareness.

What you know about Jesus thru direct personal experience is infinitely more powerful than what you’ve learned by hearsay or sermons. Jesus gives us His path to follow everyday, not a classroom style lecture to attend once a week.

Inner Christianity isn’t based on outward form, but on obeying the living Jesus within. Going to church, without the inner life and inward illumination of Christ living in you, misses the point. You get to know the living Jesus by inviting & observing His activity within you.

Jesus wants to awaken and restore God’s image inside of you, thru new birth and the lifelong process of becoming Christ-like. To know the Bible by living it is far more important than to merely read or study it.

To repent is to align your heart and life with your conscience and the inner government of God. Thinking we’re Christian because it’s our intention to be, is deception if we choose to leave our behavior unaligned with Jesus.

Grace changes a person from the inside out and begins to transform his thoughts, feelings, and actions to conform to those of Jesus. Theology, if not confirmed by personal experience, has little impact on how people live.

Sincerely ask God to bring alive the reality of Jesus in your personal experience. Then fasten your spiritual seat belt. You can daily live in the kingdom of God, because King Jesus is present among us and wants to live inside of and direct you 24/7/365.

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!
