The gap poem (intimacy and information are separated by a great gap)

The gap between
Religious information
And inner reformation
Is huge.
God’s grace
Will close that gap
If with humility and repentance
You begin to practice
Ongoing obedience
To the living Jesus,
Now present through the Holy Spirit.
Let Him reside
And endlessly abide
In you
And powerfully be your guide
As you continually confide
In Him.

Close the gap! The Bible says that God is working in you. It’s good to pay attention to what He’s doing in you. Religion talks about Jesus like He’s not in the room, but He is if we gather in His name.

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!
