Christian unbelief in the resurrection of Jesus

Religious ceremony
Without living testimony
Is like eating
Plain macaroni.

A lack of believe that Jesus is alive, present, and speaking to them, causes Christians to rely on religion, ceremony, and sermons. Pure water and pure thoughts are more refreshing than murky ones.

Worship that keeps Jesus at a distance doesn’t get to know His daily presence and companionship. If you won’t willingly make room for the living Jesus in your life, He won’t make you let Him in.

Do nothing church that trains people to do nothing but listen has no power. “Faith without works is dead.” Dead religion, crusty ceremony without living testimony, is not what Jesus is about!

Your conscience is a candle that carries the inner light of God. Refuse to snuff it out. God frequently makes me conscience of my conscious and shows me things I don’t really want to know.

The person who forgives first wins the battle to overcome bitterness. People don’t like to listen to angry, agitated people. They’ll hear you better if you’re calm and kind. Live like Jesus is risen and present in all you think, say, and do.

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!
