Is modern Christianity like an old tube of glue?

Without the glue of humility, openness, forgiveness, and compassion, humans are divisive and combative. When people come together to listen to and obey the living Jesus, their hearts connect with invisible glue.

If you feel like
You don’t have a clue,
Let Jesus be the glue
That puts you together.

If we don’t
Humble ourselves and let Jesus
Heal our shame,
We don’t gather
In His name.

Christians make much ado
About Jesus,
But too often we resist
Letting Him glue
Our heart to Him.

Much Christianity has become like an old tube of glue. It has dried-up and lost its ability to connect people heart-to-heart. Without daily submitting to the presence of the risen Jesus, Christianity is unglued and far removed from what it is intended to be.

“Do you go to church?” is a misleading question. What matters is how strong is your heart-connection with Jesus and His followers.

If you go to church and have little heart connection with people, you’re missing the point of the Bible’s one another commandments. If sitting on a church premises on Sunday doesn’t train you to daily stand on God’s promises, something’s way off track.

If you don’t like how you’re feeling, re-examine what you’re believing. Your mind is like glue. The thoughts you allow in it will eventually adhere to it.

What you choose
To believe
Can enlighten
Or deceive.

If you read the Bible and let God copy and paste it on your heart, it’ll give you a fresh, new start. Lord Jesus, keep me glued to Your presence and surrendered to Your will.

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
