The early Christians preached and demonstrated the presence of Jesus everywhere. They didn’t just sit to be passively preached to.
Christ in you,
The hope of glory.
Celebrate His story!
Prayer’s not talking
To the air.
It’s airing your heart
To the living God.
Pentecost was rowdy
Church is tame
And can feel dead.
Fans at a tailgate party, expressing enthusiasm for their team, have a level of passion and freedom that’s often missing in church.
A national sports championship is invisible, Yet millions go wild when “their” team wins one. I find Jesus much more thrilling.
If you dismantle the wall between you and God, (self-focus, unforgiveness, pride, anger, etc.) you’ll be overcome by His presence.
It’s inspiring to see the living Jesus when ordinary people open their heart and let Him shine thru.
The greatest help to fight invisible enemies (tormenting thoughts, enslaving desires, and evil feelings) is invisible. Focus on Jesus!
There’s no time limit on conversation with God and enjoying His presence. “Pray without ceasing.”
I love when Christians set aside religious formality and gather for a free-flowing, group conversation with Jesus.
If your heart is open to Jesus, you don’t have to go to a special place to connect with Him.
Think what will happen when Christians are as quick to respond to and communicate with the living Jesus as we are with our phone.
