If King Jesus isn’t first in your life, you’re out of sync with Him

When we’re out of sync with God we sink into sin. When we’re in sync with Him we let King Jesus lead us. When you find your life sinking, start syncing with Jesus and you’ll rise.

Before you speak, lip-sync with “Christ in you.” Align your words with His voice. If King Jesus isn’t first in your life, you’re out of sync with Him.

To be a disciple of Christ is to learn how to synchronize your thoughts, feelings, and desires with God more and more every day. When you’re in sync with the world and its values, you’re out of sync with God. Synchronicity with the City of God will put you at odds with the ways of the world. The Jesus-first community has hearts in sync with one another.

Our human desires, feelings, and thoughts are frequently out of sync with reality. In a world warped by selfishness and evil, our perspective will be distorted until we lay down our preferences and align with truth.

When you personalize truth by attempting to define it by your thoughts, feelings, and desires, “your truth” becomes distorted. The essence of sin is an unwillingness to synchronize with God.

The law makes us aware that we’re unaligned with God but has no power to permanently align us with Him. The Good News proclaims that Jesus shed His blood to align us with God so that we can live in the light and reflect His power and presence with ever increasing glory.

If you’re heart isn’t ruled by King Jesus, your lifestyle won’t be either. King Jesus doesn’t just command (like a country’s king). He offers people grace — His supernatural presence and power to obey Him.

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!
