Let inspirational sparks fly!

Some people use their creativity to create excuses. I prefer to find innovative ways to spark hope in people’s hearts.

Hate and love both release enflaming sparks. Be careful which set of matches you use!

When there’s a shimmering on the ground, people bend down to examine it. Do the same when there’s a shimmering in your heart.

One spark of inspiration can shine the light on the path to a whole new beginning. Always search for the spark in your darkness. Make your heart tinder, kindling before the living God and He will ignite you from within and make you tender with His spiritual fire.

Too many Christians carry Jesus in their heart like fireworks in a box. It’s time to light the fuse! If Christ in you isn’t setting off spiritual sparks in other people’s life, you’ve hidden His light! If you won’t personally fan the flame and feed the fire of Christ in you, His inner flames will die down to cold embers.

Church keeps Christians’ hearts apart so that their inner sparks can’t ignite one another. We need to release people’s inspiring testimonies! Your salvation testimony can spark the fire of God in people. Share it often in person and on social media! Here’s mine!

Any spark can start a fire. Any heart-spark can begin a Jesus movement. Never quench an inner Jesus spark. When a spark from God is fanned by faith it will flame up into the inner glowing of a growing spiritual fire.

We need internal combustion Christianity–God’s fire ever brining in our heart! Christianity loses its spark when church starts implementing programs, methods, and procedures. Church should spark a passion for spiritual growth. When it doesn’t, it’s dead religion.

Showing people how to follow Jesus and giving them hands-on spiritual training is discipleship. A Sunday lecture is too often sparkless, lackluster religion or sentimental showmanship.

Christians need something spiritually alive. We need more than repetitive religion. We need spiritual sparks from the living God to set our heart on fire with the passion and power of the risen Jesus.

God seems to prioritize spiritual life over religious laws. The Law should lead to life. When law is turned into legalism, the spark of the inner life of God is quenched and replaced with cold-hearted rules. God is sparky!

God’s spiritual sparks are everywhere, but with society’s help, we’ve trained ourselves to trample them. Too many Christians are always stomping on spiritual sparks to keep God’s fire from spreading in their heart. Quench not God’s inner sparks!

The slightest glimmer from God is a heart-spark that when nurtured with humility can grow into a lifetime of spiritual glowing. Once Jesus is allowed to sparkle and shine in your heart, the glory of God is no longer just a theological concept.

Every day the living Jesus gives me breathtaking illumination that ignites my heart with His hope! Keep your Christianity ignited 24/7/365! You may have experienced a spark from God, but if it hasn’t started a raging spiritual fire in your heart, you need to be ignited.

The living Jesus can ignite the spark that you’ve been waiting for all your life! When Jesus is allowed to take control of your heart, spiritual sparks begin to fly. The best heart burn is to be ignited within by the fire of God. The living Jesus wants to help you see more.

One spark from God can burn up every chain of thought that has you shackled. Seek God’s spark until your heart is continually set ablaze with the flame of His ongoing presence!

Christian audiences that gather for external Christianity often miss the internal spark they need to walk daily in God’s light. Rather than being a fire starter and a fire spreader, church too often is a spiritual fire quencher.

If you’re not continually, carefully, and astutely aware, people will put out your sparks and deceive and manipulate you into downgrading your soul. Life lived without inner spiritual ignition feels like daily drudgery. Help me stay inwardly ignited, Jesus!

People who are curled up in the cozy corner of their comfort zone, find the clear light of Christ to be annoying. Almost every time I read the Bible it ignites a spark in my heart and fans the fire of God in my soul. Too many Christians are experiencing living water dehydration. Let the risen Jesus keep you always spiritually hydrated.

Being distracted by expensive things often cause people to miss the delight of priceless moments. When your efforts don’t give you the results you want, it’s quite possible that it’s a blessing in disguise.

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."
