All Saints Eve & Day are for celebrating Jesus-first people

It’s All Saints Eve–a day before All Saints Day, set aside to honor Jesus-first people. Don’t be distracted by devils.

“Hallow” is an old English word that means “to make holy or set aside for holy use.” Use today (and everyday) to glorify God! “Hallowed be Thy name.”

When I met my wife 33 years ago on All Saints Eve, little did I know that our life together would be surrounded by Jesus-first people. How blessed we are!

The purpose of All Saints Eve and Day is to celebrate the faith and inspiration of Jesus-first people. Show your appreciation to a Jesus-first person today.

I love to read the writings of Jesus-first people from the past and to spiritually interact with Jesus-first people alive today! Thank you to all the dear Jesus-first people who have encouraged me, loved me, discipled me, prayed for me, and poured out your heart to Jesus with me!

One Jesus-first person did a radical thing on All Saints Eve 505 years ago. He posted 95 criticisms of church and changed history. Now October 31 is also known as Reformation Day.

Happy All Saints (Jesus-first people) Eve and Day! Show some encouragement to the people you know who keep Jesus-first.

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!
