Make every now a holy wow!

Take the King’s crown in your life off of yourself and keep it ever on the living Jesus Christ. As Christians we don’t need more strength. We need fuller surrender to Christ’s strength.

Any day without glimpses of God’s glory is a boring story. It takes guts to be guided by God’s glory instead of by our own self-focused story.

Continually beholding
The glory and magnificence
Of the risen Jesus
Gives life true significance.

Greater glory
Than was on Moses
Fills the heart
That fully exposes
Itself to Jesus.

Look!
Jesus is everywhere
Not here and there,
He’s all the time
Not now and then.
Let His presence
Make every now
A holy wow!

All the words in the world
Can’t truly explain the Word
Who created the world
And became flesh
To live among us,
But hearts
That welcome Him
To freely live inside
Experience a radiant glory
That that rises far above
All the sermons
That have ever tried
To describe Him.

Self-glory,
The ride
Of pride,
Will destroy
Awareness of God.

Embrace full-time everywhere Christianity, not just part-time special-building Christianity. To experience the glory of God together Christians need to gather face-to-face and heart-to-heart, not just line up in rows and see the backs of people’s heads. See Hebrews 10:25. Unfortunately, church history drifts from committed discipleship to critical scholarship to casual showmanship.

A God-designed marriage is a place for His glory. It is a spiritual vineyard where the True Vine grows grapes of glory for the new wine of the Holy Spirit in the hearts of a man and a woman ever committed and surrendered to daily obeying the present, living Jesus together. Godly marriage is a model — a visible prototype — of the invisible relationship between Christ and His totally committed followers. The best (the new wine) lasts, and true love endures and flourishes in a marriage when both the husband and the wife continue to cultivate and quench not God’s Spirit.

God wasn’t invented to make you happy. You were created to daily follow and obey Him. Self-glorification is a deceptive medication.

This is a glory quencher. Since cussing is completely irrational and erratic, you’d think that educated, logical people wouldn’t do it.

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!
