“He gets us,” Asbury, & radical humility in 2023!

The living Jesus is on the move in 2023! In 2023 radical humility will become a common sight among Christ-followers. The risen Jesus invites us to go lower in radical humility so He can demonstrate His presence and power in and through us.

Lord, take this revival You are pouring out from short term meetings into a long-term movement of powerful and ongoing spiritual awakening! It’s important that church and religious leaders don’t quench it and try to make it fit into frozen forms of church.

In 2023 Jesus is showing people that there’s so much more to Him than a Sunday morning one-man show. He’s calling people out of religious formalism and into Spirit-led relationship with Him.

The body of Christ is about radical humility. Church is too often about ego and pride. Following Jesus in radical humility is to obey the Bible command to “consider others better than yourself.”

In 2023 some churches will realize that they need to humbly let people freely express what Jesus is doing in their heart. Many churches will dispense with programming Sunday services and instead let people obey the inner promptings of God’s Spirit. In 2023 many pastors will give up their pulpit time so God can prompt ordinary people to share what the Spirit tells them. They’ll be referees instead of lecturers.

In 2023 some churches will even take the pastor’s name off the church sign and literature so no one but Jesus gets the glory. Jesus loves radical humility. Show some today.

In 2023 Christ-followers will begin to gather in Spirit-led groups to listen to the risen Jesus and do what He says. I saw one of the leaders at the Asbury revival who has the authority to take the mic and put himself in the spotlight, instead practice radical humility by walking down the aisles giving out bottles of water. Other than that, he was mostly unseen in the crowd.

He gets us. Jesus is calling us to stop fighting each other and to begin fighting the inner enemies that are at work in our own heart.

“This #asburyrevival2023 is that #Ekklesia.” Make church ekklesia again.

If you embrace
Radical humility
Jesus will shine
Through your face.

There’s tranquility
In radical humility
And the ability
To love your enemies.

The waves of God’s Spirit will wash through 2023. Let them wash through 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."
