There’s no perfect church but there is a perfect Savior!

To go to Jesus
You don’t need to go
To a special building.
You can go to Him
Any time and any place.
All you need to do
Is to open and surrender
Your heart to Him
And He’ll be there!

Being led by God’s Spirit,
Christ in you,
Who speaks with
The still small voice,
And releases inner rivers
Of glorious living water,
Is an amazing adventure!
Learn to follow and obey
The risen Jesus
Every day.

Church isn’t the focus of New Testament Christianity; the living Jesus is. There’s no perfect church, but there is a perfect Savior! Keep your focus on the risen Jesus. If everyone who goes to church would actually go to the risen Jesus, the world would experience an amazing spiritual awakening.

True community isn’t lecture and audience based. It requires open sharing and heart-felt interaction. If various members of the body of Christ aren’t allowed direct input when they gather in His name, the body becomes a one-man show.

Where do you go to Jesus? I go to Jesus wherever I am because I need Him everywhere I go.

The greatest problem Christians have today is our lack of awareness of the continual presence of the living Jesus. Jesus isn’t confined to church. He’s everywhere. Learn to be continually aware of His presence. To be led by the Spirit you have to be aware of Him and of what He’s telling you to do. –Romans 8:14.

True preaching includes a demonstration of the Spirit’s power. “My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power.” Here’s a way to demonstrate the presence of Jesus: 1) Gather with some Christ-followers, 2) Everybody listen to Jesus, 3) Say and do what He prompts.

The best worship leader is the Holy Spirit. Let Him lead you into passionate adoration of God. Worship in song must be from the heart, not just singing words.

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!
