Some super, bowl statements

Life’s a salad bowl.
Let us
Fill it
With the things
That make us whole.

Before you begin to scroll
Through your problems,
Count the blessings
In your bowl!

Make it your goal
To use self-control
And keep the bowl
In your heart
Full of hope.

When you feel
Like your bowl
Is empty,
Let Jesus console
Your soul
And fill you up.

What’s the most meaningful touchdown ever? Jesus’ knees touched down as He knelt with a bowl to wash His disciples’ feet.

Team Jesus is called to take Christ’s foot-washing bowl and to go show His love to everyone. A Christian’s life should be a bowl full of the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22).

Jesus wants His disciples to be “fishers of men,” not goldfish in a religious bowl. His bowl wasn’t superficial. He filled it with water to serve people and wash their feet.

Religious affiliation
Without Jesus’ saturation
Filling the heart
Is mere recitation.

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!
