Travel with Jesus

Basking in the Son,
Absorbing the warmth
Of His presence,
Hearing the soothing sound
Of His voice in His waves
That flow from within my soul,
Windsurfing to mount up
And soar like an eagle,
Spiritually riding on His living water
As I let His inwardly flowing sea
Lovingly carry me.

When Jesus says,
“Follow Me,”
He’s inviting us
On a Spirit-led journey,
Not an academic pursuit.

Journey with Jesus.
Let Him ride
In your heart
And lead,
Direct, and guide
From the inside.

If your spiritual journey
Ends with a church service,
It’s been aborted.

Christian proclamation
Includes heart-talk,
A flow of unplanned words
From deep within
Demonstrating the presence
And reality of Jesus.

The Bible
Is the guidebook
That helps keep me
On the path
As I journey with Jesus.

If you really want
To follow Jesus,
Apply within!
Then He’ll guide you
Through the process.

Jesus is my travel plan. I want to go where He leads. If you’re not traveling with Jesus, you’re traveling without Him.

Christianity is a life-long spiritual hike, not a weekly religious lecture. “Walk in the Spirit.” Church is a Sunday destination. Christianity is the moment-by-moment journey of following Jesus for the rest of your life.

Let Jesus be your trustworthy tour guide on the journey through life. He is “the way, the truth, and the life.” The inability to fully obey God’s commands creates a desire for His Spirit who then gives us supernatural power to obey God.

If we haven’t learned the Bible by doing what it says, we haven’t really learned much about it. Be a Christ-follower, not just a member of one of the multitudes of divisions in Christianity. Jesus first!

Profanity is void of the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22). Therefore, it’s best if Christ-followers avoid going there.

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!
