Rules and the Ultimate Ruler

Would life be better
If we changed the rules?
What we really need to change
Is who rules us--
To let Jesus rule
Instead of self--
Conscience instead of desire.

Religious rules
Too often rule
What the living Jesus
Is supposed to rule
And be the Head of.

When churches
Are just schools
Of religious rules,
They ignore the Bible’s
Spiritual jewels.

Following Jesus
Is different
Than obeying rules.
It’s letting Him
Rule you
From within.

Autobiography of the Perfect Ruler.

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!
