Be a Christ-carrier and let Christ carry you

If “Christ in you”
Is true about you
That means you
Are a Christ-carrier
And you take
The ever-living Jesus
Wherever you go.

When we begin
To let the risen Jesus
Continually radiate
From deep with us
And to no longer accommodate
The world’s corruption,
We’ll experience
A glorious disruption,
An inner Holy Spirit eruption
That will demonstrate Heaven
Both within us and around us.

When you choose
A direction
And doors close
That’s not rejection.
It’s God’s protection.

Christ-followers are called to live life on earth according to God’s terms and plans, not according to our own. Jesus wants to personally train and empower us to live by His presence and ability, allowing Him to continuously and freely direct us from within, and not to live by our own self-effort.

Instead of trying to understand Him, God wants us to ever trust and rely on His nearness and reality — “Christ in you, the hope of glory.” When you fully and truly believe that you have God’s protection, you feel no need for self-protection.

Let the Bible filter your thoughts, feelings, desires, and culture. The reverse doesn’t work to produce inner peace very well.

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!
