The lures that flyfish in your mind

The more
We allow sin
To numb
Our conscience
The more dumb
Things we say and do.

Beware of the temptations that flyfish in your mind with enticing lures to yank you out of the inner river of life-giving joy. When you let your desires distract you from God’s direction you’ll be dragged into deception.

Most people don’t really believe they’re sinners. That’s why they don’t ask for and receive God’s forgiveness and deliverance from their sins.

Heaven is a sin-free zone. It would be a living hell for people who love to sin. If your heart can only feel at home dancing to Hell’s tune, Heaven would be torture for you.

Many people suffer from GRD–God Recognition Deficiency. They’re unaware of and fail to enjoy His omnipresence.

Throughout history politics has wallowed in the sin of cruel words and antagonistic actions. True freedom requires respect, compassion and kindness, even for those you disagree with. Instead of anger, we can speak the truth in love.

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!
