The Bible presents Christianity as full of insight & delight

It's easy to recite
What you've heard
And think you're right.
It's harder to hear
With delight
And fresh insight.

The more you choose to delighted by life, the less you will feel defeated by it. To avoid mental and emotional contamination, it’s important to filter your thinking.

Repentance is getting out of an emotional bear trap, being set free from mental hand cuffs, and crawling from under the rubble in your life. When you surrender your brokenness to the risen Jesus, He turns it into a platform from which to demonstrate his power and love in and thru you.

Rather than following our own blueprint or script, Christ-followers are called to continually obey the living Jesus. When Christians assemble as an audience, they abdicate their responsibility to be an interactive, Spirit-led body of believers.

Often when people and/or churches talk about Jesus, they are referring to a pseudo-Jesus. A pseudo-Jesus is any Jesus other than the living, resurrected, Jesus, present in and with His followers (as presented in the Bible).

When you bend
In the wind
That the living Jesus sends
He will wend
Your way with love.

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
