Stay charged with the ever-living Jesus

I want to be
A fruit stand
Of God’s Spirit
Giving free samples
Of His produce
To all who pass by.

Before you express your feelings, align them with reality. “Is this feeling based on truth or is it just my emotional reaction?”

The closer I stay to the risen Jesus, the less my feelings dominate me and the more I freely soar on the wind of God’s Spirit. When we have no direct connection with and awareness of the ever-living Jesus we’re spiritually offline.

Jesus is a fully charged battery of hope and power. If Christ is in you, make sure you stay connected to His unlimited energy flow.

When people have Christ living inside of them, they have a deep, inner connection with each other, even if they don’t recognize it. When Christ in me connects with Christ in you we experience a beautiful sense of kinship.

Reading the Bible with an open, honest heart connects me to the living Jesus. I sense Him working strongly in me as I read. People who are surrendered to the presence and power of the risen Jesus experience a supernatural connection when they open their heart to each other.

The best protection
Against feelings of rejection
Is ongoing connection
With Jesus.

The friction
In your life,
Doesn’t need
To be restriction.
Let it be
The inner ignition
That sets you ablaze
With ever-growing hunger
For greater connection
With God.

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!
