Eyesight or insight

I need more than eyesight. I’m continually searching for insight. By being inquisitive about life, I find much to inspire me and fill me with joy.

I’m continually inquisitive about the Bible. I’ve been reading it daily for decades and still want to know more about it. To me the Bible is a love letter from the living God. It makes my heart dance.

I don’t understand how the internet works, but that doesn’t stop me from interacting with it. The same with the Bible.

The prophets and many other of the Bible writers state that they wrote what was revealed to them by God. They often didn’t understand what they wrote, but they felt inspired by God to write it. When I read their writings something amazing happens inside of me. I am filled with inspiration and closeness to God. I can’t explain it, but it happens. The words burn in my heart.

I avoid the “biblical inerrancy” debate. It’s sometimes difficult to tell what is intentional allegory in the Bible and what is historical. I believe the Bible, not because of some doctrine, but because it works in my heart when I read it. It changes me from the inside out. It makes Jesus come alive to me.

World history is full of books by powerful Christ-followers who deeply loved Jesus. I devour as many of those books as I can find.

If going to church hasn’t ignited spiritual fireworks in your heart, ask the living Jesus to ignite them for you. He will!!! If a sermon doesn’t make you inquisitive about how you can get to know Jesus better, it hasn’t done its job.

Jesus, You keep my heart on fire with love and adoration for You! Day and night, I hunger and thirst for more of Your presence.

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!
