Experience “innermost being” Christianity

Innermost being Christianity is much more powerful than mere church attendance. What does the Bible mean when it talks about your “innermost being”?

The innermost being is the place of awe-releasing rivers of living water that flow from deep within carrying the fruit of the Spirit and the blessings and characteristics of the Beatitudes while washing over and continually cleansing and attuning my distorted mind, emotions, desires, and will to the presence and power of the risen Jesus living in me. All I need to do is to abide with Him and refuse to quench His spirit by going mentally, emotionally, spiritually, or physically where I’m not supposed to be.

Christianity should be seen as full surrender to the living Jesus, not as membership and meeting attendance in a religious institution. You’re either being led by the Spirit or you’re quenching the Spirit. Which are you doing? You can’t do both at the same time.

People who haven’t clearly experienced the living Jesus have no desire to put Him first in their life. Religious organizations divide people, but people led by the Spirit discover they’re moving closer to God and closer together.

A reformed church without reformed and Spirit-led people will remain a form of religious programming. Perhaps churches don’t need to be reformed but transcended. Maybe we need to follow Jesus instead of a religious organization.

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!
