If today was my last day (here’s what I’d say)

If today was
My last day
I'd want to
Do or say
Something
That would show
Someone
The reality
Of the living Jesus.

Here’s some samples:

Spiritual rejuvenation is to continually experience the free flowing of the living Jesus from within you. The more room you make for the living Jesus to take over your life, the more joy you will experience.

Vulnerability, humility, and surrender prepare the way for the free flowing of the living Jesus from within you. Tear down the dams that prevent the free flowing presence of the living Jesus from cascading thru your life.

A burning desire to be continually aware of the presence of living Jesus is the key to the ongoing rejuvenation of your heart. When Christ in you is repressed, you prevent his glory from being expressed thru you. If you’re unwilling to do something different, unexpected, and unplanned, you won’t be able to follow the living Jesus.

Sip and savor God’s living water. Bask in the presence of the risen Jesus. The presence of Jesus will put your weary mind at ease and help your broken heart believe. The contemporary church seems to lack the power to move people beyond theology and words, into the reality of the risen Jesus.

Rejuvenation with redirection won’t last. When Jesus says “Repent,” it’s an invitation to remove the ruble from your life, rebuild with hope, and restore what’s been lost.

Open your heart and let the living Jesus usher in the healing flow of His presence. A heart continually canopied by the overgrowth of day-to-day busyness seldom sees the splendorous sight of the Son of God.

The more adherence you give to the presence of Jesus, the greater the clearance of guilt and shame from your life. The more you listen to Jesus’ melody, the more you’ll joyfully sing with emotional harmony.

The devil wants to cheat you out of inner peace. Jesus wants to treat you to the ongoing wonder of His daily presence.

I love
To take the time
To just be
And let
The living Jesus
Flow thru me.

The inner jubilation
Of spiritual rejuvenation
Resounds within 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
