The Holy Spirit is fiery (not recommended for casual Christians)

The Holy Spirit is fiery. He came with flames of fire at Pentecost. When not quenched, He burns in human hearts. He disturbs casual, lukewarm Christianity. Thus, He’s not welcome and His leadership isn’t wanted or appreciated in most religious settings. Beyond giving Him a token mention from time to time, He’s mostly ignored in Christian gatherings.

Very rarely is the Holy Spirit ever allowed to take charge and disrupt a meeting like He did on Pentecost Sunday, creating the world-wide movement of Christianity. He’d like to get us moving again like a raging wildfire consuming everything in sight but the cold ashes in our heart resist His sparks and put them out before they can burst into flame. And we’re too often content with that. Casual Christianity is a causality of our apathy — a spiritual tragedy. It’s not the will of God!

To be Spirit-led
You have to get
Beyond your head
And open your heart
So you can start
To be aware 
Of God's nudgings
And promptings
Within you.

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!
