Church-swap Sunday idea

Let all the Christians
(Including the preachers)
On a certain Sunday
In a particular town
Ask God to send them
To a church other than
The one they normally attend
And when they gather
Say and do
Whatever the risen Jesus
Tells them to.
Would that be chaos or glory?
I believe that the Holy Spirit
Would take control
And the glory of God
Would flood that town
With rivers of living water.

When church is always presented as a 1-man presentation, there’s no room for anyone else to manifest the gifts of the Spirit.

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!
