God’s route is Spirit-led

Christianity’s about Jesus and being led by His Spirit. Anyone or anything that gets more of your attention than Jesus blocks the way. Every Christian needs to learn to be led by God’s Spirit.

There’s nothing routine about being Spirit-led! It’s vastly different than settling into routine religion. The Bible clearly demonstrates that God wants people to rely on His presence, power, and reality, not just on religious routine. If you’re not being led by the Spirit, you might be asleep to God. Routine religion can become bland but being led by God’s Spirit is never dull.

The idea that Christianity should look the same each week isn’t biblical! Christians are called to be changed from glory to glory. It’s difficult to be led by the Spirit when you’ve embraced the route of routine.

You can’t follow Jesus if you’re unwilling to be led by the inner urgings of His Spirit and by His promptings in your conscience. Unless Christians are trained to be Spirit-led we’ll stay stuck in things that are spiritually dead.

Christians are called to be led by God’s Spirit in all we think, say, and do. Learn to be inwardly directed by God’s Spirit concerning everything you read, watch, or listen to.

Prepare the way of the Lord. Make plenty of room for the living Jesus to daily direct your life. Cooperate with the Holy Spirit as He convicts you to redirect your life away from self-will to God’s will.

Let the Bible be your daily training manual. It’s full of real-life examples of people who learned to be led by God’s Spirit.

Too many Christians ignore the fire of God and settle for smoldering ashes. If you’ve ever felt God’s fire in your heart stoke it back to full and roaring flame. To drown out the flames of the Holy Spirit’s fire is to reject being led by the Spirit.

Only the living Jesus, ever-present in the Holy Spirit, can safely lead us beyond the deeds of darkness. Christ in you is indeed the hope of glory! How desperately we need to be trained to let God’s Spirit daily lead us with His inner promptings and conscience urgings! See Romans 8:14.

Rather than welcoming
Wrongful thoughts
Into their head,
Christians need
To instead
Be Spirit-led.

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!

  1. Dear Steve,
    Greetings from Nigeria. I am from Nigeria. Presently I serve with the church of Christ as a minister. I am an aged widower, a very lonely man.
    I have come to know ekklesia through internet. Every day I go to internet to read about ekklesia. Truly I believe that Jesus did not say that He would build His church, but ekklesia. After much prayer, I have decided to set up home based ekklesia. There is non here. I want God to use me to start this.
    Please can you kindly help to come over to Nigeria to help in planting ekklesia. Please do you know ekklesia planters that I can invite them to Nigeria. I wrote before but no answer.
