Today experience life with Jesus

Look for Jesus today. He’s everywhere. If you notice Him, listen to Him, and obey His inner promptings, what a day today will be! Today notice Jesus everywhere you go. Surrender to His presence. Rely and depend on Him every moment.

For many Christians, Jesus is like the sky. They believe He’s present, but they rarely notice Him. To keep Jesus out of your today is to keep Him out of your life. The most ignored gift of the present moment is the omnipresent Jesus. Every day that I let Jesus lead me makes it easier to let Him lead me the next day.

Today is the time to experience life with Jesus! The fact that you woke up this morning means that Jesus hasn’t given up on you. When I wake up Jesus is always there to greet me. He can manage my day much better than I can. Today I will keep my attention focused on the risen Jesus.

The next time you pray will be the first prayer of the rest of your life. Make it humble and heart-felt.

The long-ago Jesus and the someday-in-the-future Jesus are both far removed from now. Let the today Jesus live and work in you. Jesus-past and Jesus-future are both unapproachable today. But Jesus-present is now reaching out to you. Respond to Him!

You can hear and/or read about what Jesus did in the past and will do in the future, but you can only experience Him in the now! My best life can’t compare to the life of Christ living in me!

To follow Christ, you need to be daily discipled and led by the living Jesus. When I listen to and obey Jesus, today is never a rewind of yesterday. Make today a day-long encounter with the risen Jesus.

If you allow Jesus to actively live in you today, He will lead you from the inside out. Every day brings more opportunities to interact with the risen Jesus!

I love it when members of the body of Christ meet together as a Spirit-led team. Christians need to interact with the living Jesus together, but you also need to interact with Jesus by yourself.

Spirit-led people are no longer in bondage to the desires of human nature. They’re directed by the Spirit not by their wants.

Instead of pursuing our own desires, feelings, and opinions, Christians are supposed to be daily led by the promptings of God’s Spirit within us. (See Romans 8:14.) We humans don’t know how bad we are and how much we need God’s mercy until we sincerely want and try to be good. It’s human nature to be desire-led, but Jesus wants His followers to be Spirit-led instead.

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!
