Time for a Spirit-led test drive

Test drive the Bible. Read it with an open heart and notice what it does inside you.

If you never test drive your spirituality and experience Jesus behind the wheel, you’ll never know what He can do. The living Jesus doesn’t always speak in words, but He always speaks in ways a listening heart can hear.

Discipleship begins with repentance. It requires that we begin to think differently and to see things from God’s perspective instead of your own.

Experiencing the living Jesus is like experiencing self. It’s an internal and immaterial experience, so you can’t “prove” it, but you know when it’s happening.

Too many Christians
Merely listen
To religious talks.
Too few let Jesus
Dazzle them.

Beyond the mind,
Beyond opinion,
Study and analysis,
You can find
The risen Jesus.

The risen Jesus,
Although invisible
To my eyes,
Continually dazzles
My heart!

Let the living Jesus
Be your live-in
And daily direct you
By His presence 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
