Political heroes rise & fall, but . . .

Beyond human politics
There’s an invisible kingdom,
A government that flows from
Beyond this world
And seeks to end
The widespread rebellion
Inside human beings
And to bring restoration
And peace of mind
To all who will fully
Surrender to its authority.
It’s not aligned with governments
That demand outward compliance
And rule by laws,
But have no power
To change human hearts.
“The kingdom of God
Is within you.”
Is it ruling inside of you?
Are you obeying
Its resurrected King and Lord?
Or are you following
Your own desires
And rebelling against it?

If you focus on and exalt a politician, you’ll be disappointed. Instead focus on and exalt the living Jesus. When Christians get distracted and live like Jesus is merely a myth, their lives go amiss.

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!
