If you never take the time to tame your inner jungle, life will remain a mess. If you will sit quietly on the still bank of peace and fish within for insight, the catch of the day will help heal your heart.
The path to God is not to proudly analyze, but to humbly see with His spiritual eyes. Jesus is better realized than sermonized–experienced as living reality instead of presented as a religious concept.
Many Christians are reluctant converts. They claim to be converted, but they’re reluctant to fully follow and obey the risen Jesus and to let Him tame their inner jungle.
To sermonize, but fail to open spiritual eyes, falls far short of biblical Christianity. Church has sermonized Christianity to death. Its over analysis has produced spiritual paralysis. Church focuses on religious words for the mind, instead of training people how to daily hear, obey, and mind the living Jesus.
If you want a sermon, why settle for a wimpy one? Find one that convicts you of sin and fills your soul with passion to obey the risen Jesus! I like theology, but I’d much rather have the living Jesus tame my inner jungle as a present day reality.
It’s much more common for Christians to analyze the Bible than to ponder it until it sets the heart aflame. Jesus calls people to dance with Him and be Spirit-led, but all church seems to want to do is sing a few songs and lecture about music theory.
We’ve made church about religious methodology and passive mental absorption, neglecting spontaneous, heart-felt spirituality. Churches analyze Jesus. Ekklesia experiences Him and surrenders to His will.
Without opening spiritual eyes
Is to disguise
The reality of Jesus.
Knowledge seldom Stirs the heart. Religious information Without revelation Is an empty cart.
