Let Jesus in your heart before you head out of this life

Here's the deal:
If you're asleep to the thrill
Of knowing Jesus
And caught in the chill
Of a cold heart,
You'll seldom feel
His real presence.

A Christian audience
Can easily overlook the radiance
Of the presence
Of the risen Jesus
That continually wowed
The first Christ-followers
And become uninspired,
Lone rangers in a crowd
Hearing one man speak aloud.

If “If you snooze you lose,” applies to Christianity, we better wake up! Let Jesus in your heart before you head out of this life.

If you think you deserve good things from God, you don’t understand grace. God gave me a wonderful relationship with Jesus that I didn’t earn and don’t deserve.

When church is an audience, people are personally disconnected from each other and become lone rangers in a crowd. Instead of being a gathering for heart-to-heart connection and Spirit-led expression, church became a place for head talks and mentally-prepared messages.

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!
