God’s heart-to-heart “house” of “living stones”

I saw the house of the Lord being built today at a Christian conference where the Holy Spirit was allowed to take over the meeting so powerfully that the closing keynote speaker didn’t want to speak so that the Holy Spirit could keep on leading us. That’s what we need to begin to see happen in our institutions called churches.

Jesus wants to build a “heart-to-heart” Spirit-led house with His followers that includes you in it. He is gathering His people, assembling His body, and building His ekklesia. Let’s become surrendered living stones who fully cooperate with Him.

God's True House

It's time to let Jesus build
The house of the Lord,
A habitation for Him,
Made out of "living stones,"
People connected heart-to-heart.
Let's cultivate an environment
Where Jesus can reign supreme
And can override our human need
To have our will be done,
Where no one can steal the show
And everyone present will know
That Jesus, God's risen Son,
Is the only one in control.
Lord "stir up the spirit" of Your people
To begin to work on the house of the Lord.
(Haggai 1:14.)

Jesus said, “I will build My ekklesia (the participatory town hall meeting in an ancient Greek city),” because He is the foundation of the city “whose architect and builder is God.” The ekklesia is the gathering where Christ-followers can practice transcendent faith and go beyond human order, hierarchy, and religion by learning to be aware of and obey the inner promptings of the Holy Spirit as together they surrender to the direct leadership and Headship of the risen Jesus.

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!
