Being face-to-face with the risen Jesus

When you truly
Experience God’s grace
Your heart will
Encounter Jesus

Life’s not about the circumstances you’re facing. It’s about who you’re facing! Keep your eyes on the risen Jesus. Once you’ve truly come face-to-face with Jesus you’ll never want to leave. Sunday sermons are quickly forgotten but face-to-face interaction with the living Jesus makes a lasting impact!

True Christianity is a life lived face-to-face with Jesus. Being face-to-face with Jesus should be a lifestyle, not a rare moment. Face-to-face interaction with Jesus is vital! Begin to live in the supernatural habitat of being face-to-face with the risen Jesus.

People shine the brightest when they’re living face-to-face with the risen Jesus. When you’re face-to-face with the living Jesus, your own desires melt away.

When a group of people gathers face-to-face with the risen Jesus it’s much more than a church service! You can actually see His glory shinning from their faces. There’s nothing wrong with sitting in rows to face a preacher, but it’s much more powerful to sit face-to-face with Jesus.

Religious talks about Jesus without face-to-face interaction with Him will keep you unaware of His presence. No church or religion should ever replace a face-to-face relationship with the risen Jesus.

I love to spend my days facing Jesus’ face and gazing into His eyes. Church has never been able to hold my attention, but I’m a huge fan of being face-to-face with the risen Jesus! I find church to be a poor replacement for ongoing spiritual connection with Jesus.

The key to Christianity isn’t going to church. It’s to keep your life facing Jesus and refuse to be distracted by the darkness around you.

Grace isn’t a once and done prayer. I need the presence and mercy of Jesus every day. If you turn your face toward temptation, you’ll eventually fall. If you keep your face set on Jesus, you’ll stand.

Until church becomes a place
Where people are trained
In face-to-face
Interaction with Jesus,
It will only be a tiny trace
Of what it could be.

The human heart
Has a longing
For belonging
That is only met
By surrender to God.

Your need to belong
Can’t be fully met
By just going along
And attending church.
To satisfy your
Hunger and thirst
Continually search
For more of Jesus.

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!
