Band of heart-connected Christ-followers


God’s supernatural assembly
Consists of a multitude of
Worldwide members
Invisibly banded together,
Not by agreement
Or by organization,
Not superficially,
But by deep
With the risen
And living Jesus
And with all
Who truly love Him.
When they meet
With open hearts,
Even as strangers
They discover Jesus
Working in each other
And behold His glory
As they experience
His presence.

Lord, open our eyes
So we can see
That’s there’s no place
In Your body
For us to be

The Christ-band I continually interact with starts with my wife and then our close brothers and sisters in Christ. It includes a group of students at Lincoln Technical School in Nashville and expands to Christ-followers near and far. It’s continually being expanded as God brings us more and more people to open our hearts to and to practice the 50+ New Testament “one another” verses. Heart-connection isn’t bound by time or place!

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!
