Everyone knows it’s windy

Too many Christians wear a windbreaker to try to keep the wind of God’s Spirit from influencing their life. The Bible calls that “quenching the Spirit.” You can’t control the Wind of God’s Spirit, but you can try to avoid its impact on your life.

Your heart is like a windmill. It doesn’t work right until the Wind of God’s Spirit is blowing thru it. Without the Wind of God’s Spirit, the human heart quickly fills with cobwebs, spiders, and creepy things.

Your conscience is God’s Wind whistling in your heart. The invisible energy of God’s Wind should never be ignored and avoided. The Wind of God’s Spirit is the cure for the storms in your soul.

When Jesus is living inside of you, it’s windy. He continually blows away things that distract you from His will. When you hide from God’s wind, fog fills your heart. God’s wind is destructive to sin, but it caresses the soul.

What’s the “Wind Thrill Factor” in your life? How often does the living Jesus thrill you with the actual presence of the Wind of God’s Spirit?

The best plan for your life is to follow God’s plan for you. Until your heart is daily directed and controlled by the wind of the Holy Spirit, you’re settling for less than Christianity. The answer is when we’re continually blowing in the inner wind of God’s Spirit.

The words in the Bible are like wind. They’re meant to blow fresh air into your heart, not to be picked apart by your brain. I love to let my heart soar in the inner wind of the Holy Spirit!

“Church” in English Bibles doesn’t refer to people sitting thru sermons in a religious building, but to Spirit-led people gathering.

Cell groups, life groups, home groups? Perhaps what churches need are “practice groups,” where people can practice what they heard in the sermon. The living Jesus can’t be contained by religious cages.

The living Jesus
Is like the wind.
He’ll never fit in
Our religious systems.

Turn your face
To God’s wind
And let Him
Refresh you
From within.

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
