“Jesus was” or “Jesus is”?

Some people say, “Jesus was . . .,” but His resurrection declares, “Jesus is . . .!” His story isn’t just history; it continues to be written today in and through the life of millions of people.

Christianity’s not a role that you play when you go to church. It’s being inwardly transformed and empowered by the risen Jesus. The One who left His tomb empty can fill the empty places in your heart!

If you’re ever on TV
And play the role
Of a church attendee,
It’s easy.

God didn't roll
The stone away
So we can play
A religious role
But so we can
Be continually led
By the risen 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!
