Living like God is real

The witness of God in your conscience is real. Following it will free you from the ravages of guilt. If you don’t overcome your own wrongful inclinations, you’ll live as their prisoner.

Until God appears in your heart, it’s easy to overlook Him everywhere else. To ignore or disobey the stirrings of God in your heart is to jump overboard in the middle of the ocean.

Let the living Jesus calm the agitations of your mind and heart. Nothing can really teach you about the nature and meaning of Jesus Christ but to personally experience and daily surrender to Him. The inner demonstrations of Jesus Christ, in human hearts that wait for Him, is absolutely, utterly amazing!

To make room for Jesus: Open your heart. Overcome your wrong desires. Obey Him. Embrace humility. Love everyone. Apologize quickly. If Jesus isn’t your friend, your teacher, your guide, your counselor, your Lord, do you really have a relationship with Him?

Are sermons wasted time? Until we begin to live up to what we already know about Jesus, it does little good to know more.

The race to apologize has few winners. Most people stall until they drop out. The raging power of pride is a poor guide for life.

Whatever a people trust in and look to for support is their God. The only way to seek Jesus is to seek Jesus first. If He’s not first, we’ll be distracted by other things. The fruit of the Spirit only grows in tender-hearted people. (Galatians 5:22.)

Bloody behaviors are far too common when people rely on outward weapons instead of spiritual ones. Trusting the living Jesus to protect you is more powerful than trusting physical weapons.

If you’ve not been taught by the Spirit,
You’ve missed out on the most important teaching
And still need to hear it.

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
