Inner yearning, churning, & burning says you’re not a bot!

Too many people are like bots. They perform tasks and spread unverified ideas automatically, without thinking or discernment.

People are created to be more than a bot being carried around in a human body and controlled by predetermined programming. We’ve been endowed with the freedom and responsibility of choice.

What you allow to go on inside of you (in your mind and heart) impacts you more than what’s going on around you. We need to inwardly regulate and control our desires, thoughts, and feelings — to nurture and embrace good ones and to reject and oppose wrongful ones.

What’s yearning, churning, and burning inside you? Desire for God or rebellion against Him? When there’s little kindness and warmth radiating from people, you can be pretty certain that their heart isn’t on fire for Jesus.

When something important is on fire, people yell to let people know. When your heart’s on fire for Jesus, you gotta tell!

If Jesus is in you,
You’ll be
And yearning
For more of God.

Grace freely gives us the inner power to avoid being a bot by regulating our desires and doing what God requires.

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 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 in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
