Are you locked in vigor-less Christianity?

When your problems
Get bigger
You need more
Of Christ’s inner vigor.

Daily surrender
To Christ’s vigor
In your soul
Will make you whole.

To “stir up the gift”
Of “Christ in you”
Requires vigorous
Inner action
To renew your passion.
Complacent satisfaction
Won’t do it.

You don’t need
To excuse
Your behavior
When you lose
Your vigor
And your first love for Jesus.
You need to
Relight His fuse.
And ignite
His inner dynamite.

Jesus wants to give you
Supernatural vigor
That goes far beyond
Mere deliberation
And trying to figure
Things out.

When I concentrate,
Ponder and meditate
On the living Jesus
I feel His presence radiate
From within me.

A clear vision of the living Jesus will fill you with vigor and the power to live victoriously in His glory. Daily following and obeying the living Jesus will instill more and more vigor into your life.

Vigor-less Christians have quenched the Spirit. Christ’s inner vigor never gets old, but without it our excitement for life wears down.

Wake up and experience the inner vigor of the living Jesus. You’ll love the lifetime adventure of awakening to “Christ in you.” The more you obey the promptings of the risen Jesus instead of your own desires, the more of His inner vigor you will experience.

The risen Jesus continually invigorates me and fills me with His vitality. Christ in me is a gushing river of vigor. When I read the Bible with an open heart I’m vigorously inspired by the presence of Jesus. His words burn in my heart!

If Christ is in you, sense His presence; flow with His movement; hear His voice. Without inner vigor, outward effort is hard to maintain.

If you don’t know which desires not to follow, you’ll waste much vigor pursuing deception. Doing wrong isn’t a good thing for your mental health. To “love your enemies” requires vigorous kindness that overrides hostility.

To build a church
On human effort
Human personality,
And human ego
Is to engage
In counterfeit Christianity
That substitutes
Human ability
For Christ’s
Supernatural vigor.

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!
