Marinate in Jesus!

Marinate in Jesus
Until He saturates,
And activates
You from within!

Let Jesus
Live in you
And flow through
All you say
And do.

When your heart
And mind
Are entwined
With Jesus,
You’ll be aligned
with His will.

Unless we let Jesus grasp, captivate, and take control of our heart, we’re only playing with Christianity. The brighter we let Jesus shine forth in our heart, the more self fades from our view. Jesus doesn’t come into a human heart to be passive, but to express Himself as the loving, inner King, Lord, and Master!

Jesus was the best counselor and communicator who ever lived. Now He offers to counsel and communicate with you through God’s Spirit. However, it’s hard to hear Jesus if we don’t believe that He speaks and we’re unwilling to be quiet and listen.

Life-changing power is released when Christians begin to obey the inner nudgings and promptings that come from Jesus. Begin to listen to and obey Him!

Christ-followers are called to live contrary to the values of their world, not to align with them. When Christians live a different lifestyle than the society around them, they don’t need to be trained to do evangelism. It happens spontaneously.

Water baptism is good, but Christians need much more than that. They need to be continually immersed in and saturated with the presence of the living Jesus.

Whatever fills a human heart seeps out for all to see. A person’s actions and attitudes eventually reveal what’s inside them.

Churches don’t have a shortage of programs, but they often seem to have a shortage of life-changing power. Church programs tend to produce passivity. They seldom seem to produce a heart that’s openly passionate about Jesus.

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!
