If the Son is risen, let’s meet to let Him lead us!

About Jesus
Isn’t the same
As gathering
To go with His flow.

Water that doesn’t flow becomes stagnant and unpleasant. So do Christians who don’t let Jesus continually flow thru their heart.

If church belongs to Jesus, why don’t we ever let Him take direct control of a worship service? When we’re unwilling to let Jesus take full and direct control of a church service, we act like we don’t completely believe that He’s alive and present. To not give the living Jesus the opportunity to take control of a church service is to doubt (and/or fear) His resurrection.

If Jesus is really alive, the choice for church isn’t human control or chaos. The choice is human control or Christ’s control.

Christians say that church belongs to Christ, but we want it programed and controlled to fit our comfort zone. To be a Christ-follower is to be frequently inconvenienced by the living Jesus and continually surprised by His joy!

Lord Jesus, the Hope of Glory living within me, help me humbly walk in Your victory.

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!
