Until our hearts are together, we’re not really together

Together?
I see
Connection lost,
Disconnected hearts,
Human alienation,
People apart.

The avoidance
Of heart connection
Is the rejection
Of compassion
And affection.

A programmed heart
Has lost the art
Of taking part
In spontaneous joy.

Loneliness is the symptom of a disconnected heart. It’s important to sometimes let your heart unfold, like a flower in the sun, and open up to caring, connection, and compassion.

It’s hard to hear someone’s heart when you’re living in a loud crowd of superficiality. We humans have myriads of unobserved commonalities but too often focus on our differences.

Mingling is common. Heart connection’s rare. When human hearts connect, differences diminish. Until our hearts are together, we’re not really together.

Jesus connects people’s hearts. Religion separates them. Biblical Christianity is about Christ-connection & heart affection, not mere theological reflection. Subjects of the kingdom of God need to frequently gather to interact with King Jesus in a citizen’s assembly.

If you don’t personally connect with the living Jesus, lectures about Him will do you little good. I find a circle of heart-felt sharing to be much more open to the Holy Spirit than a programmed talk from a “higher up.” I want to be a catalyst for Christ-connection, inspiring people to connect with the living Jesus and with each other.

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
