The desire to be free from dominating desires

When desire overrides reason life is reckless. When reason overcomes desire sanity is restored.

Modeling your message is more powerful than meddling and manipulating. Kindness is more effective at changing a human heart than coercion is.

No matter what your role in life, as life rolls on, be a role model for good behavior, not an example of bad. Disagreeing with something someone does doesn’t mean that you’re judging or meddling in their life.

True love neither insults or attacks a sinner nor approves of or applauds sin. Love the sinner so much that love liberates him from his sin. “Love lifted me.”

Human-powered Christianity crawls in circles. Christ-powered Christianity soars in His Spirit.

God is working in you right now. Are you aware of what He’s doing? If the risen Jesus isn’t real to you every day, calling one day Easter seems to be pointless.

Because of pride,
Reality is denied
As people hide
From truth.

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!
