Christianity unapplied is Christianity denied

Is to let
The risen
And be
Your inner

That tells
Or compels
You to quench
The Holy Spirit
Is contrary
To God.

If you never overflow with heart-felt expressions of faith in and love for Jesus, there may be a kink in your spiritual hose. Spirit-prompted expressions of love for Jesus that flow from the heart reveal glimpses of God’s glory. Christ-followers need to gather to hear and obey the Holy Spirit’s promptings, not to hinder the Spirit.

Trying to circumvent God doesn’t vent your heart. It makes it stale and prevents your conscience from leading you to fresh air.

You can’t be led by God’s Spirit if you ignore, hinder, or circumvent His inner promptings. Anytime you dim Christ’s inner light you move closer to darkness. Every time you circumvent your conscience, you jump over a guardrail. Anything that hinders you from being the person God wants you to be is sin.

Put your trust and attention on Christ working in you, not on preachers and singers. Church is too often seen as Christianity express–a one-stop, quick fix for your spiritual needs and/or religious obligations.

Christ came to make me His temple, turning over my tables and powerfully working in me. I try to make room for Him and not to block His way.

Until Christ in you
Is allowed to shine
His glorious inner light,
You’ll only see
With human sight.

A pure heart
Is transparent.
It’s nature
Is apparent.

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!
