God’s holy fire (Mt Carmel to Emmaus to you)

Our watered-down hearts
Need to be set ablaze
By the living words
Of the risen Jesus
So that they
Burn within us
Like they did
In the brothers
On the road
To Emmaus,
Not luke-warm.
Be like Elijah.
Ask God for heart-fire
And let it make you
A living sacrifice–
A spreader of
God’s glory
Everywhere you go.
Fall prostrate and cry,
“The Lord–He is God!”
Jesus, the one
Who answered
The Emmaus brothers
By words on fire,
Will do the same
For you!

When the members of the body of Christ have been trained to meet as passive spectators not much happens. We need God’s fire.

For the spiritual
Adventure of your life
Step beyond
The rigid religious forms
That shut down spontaneity.
Then dip yourself
Into Jesus’ serendipity.

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!
