Quick thoughts about God

If you surrender your heart to God and let go of trying to figure Him out, He’ll be able to get a better hold on you.

Because Jesus is eternal, He’s never outdated. Because Jesus is alive and present, we can continually experience His indwelling within us. The living Jesus offers us deep rest–inner rivers of living water to cleans and refresh us with inner peace.

The phrase, “Jesus is Lord,” means He is in charge. We say it, but seldom allow Him to be. If our Christianity doesn’t give us the inner power to begin to live a godly lifestyle, we’ve accepted a counterfeit version

A gathering/community of Christ-followers belongs to Jesus, not to any other person. It’s His, not mine. When Christians meet, we should let Jesus prompt various people to speak in the gathering, but we rarely do.

When Christians keep their focus on a pastor, they begin to ignore the reality and presence of the living Jesus. True Christianity requires that we prioritize Jesus, keeping our focus on Him and refusing to be distracted by alluring deceptions.

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
