Insight from the Asbury awakening 2023

God wants to free up
Sit down and listen
Church attendees
To stand up
And freely express
Their love for Jesus!

You don’t need
To go anywhere
Or attend anything
To experience
Christ in you.

Whether you were at Asbury
Or not,
Jesus still
Wants you
To surrender
To His will
So He can fill
And thrill
You with His
Glorious presence.

God is calling Christians
Beyond church as usual,
Just passively sitting thru
Sermons and programs,
To where everyone
Is interacting with
And being led by
The living Jesus.

It’s time to shed
Our religious skin
That holds us in
Rigid church programs
And endless one-man teaching
So we can begin
To obey the promptings
Of Christ within
And be His
Spirit-led body.

If we aren’t free to obey God’s promptings in church services around people who love us, we’ll not have the courage to obey them in our daily life when we’re around people who don’t love us. It’s time for churches and individual Christians to let the risen Jesus, Himself, lead us!

You don’t need to be at Asbury to bask in Jesus’ presence. He’s where you are now! Open wide your heart to Him.

It’s important that church and religious leaders don’t quench the revival that God is pouring out by trying to make it fit into frozen forms of church! Make church spontaneous, untimed, and Spirit-led. Search: Beyond Church Ekklesia.

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!
