Are you sent?

I don’t want
My faith to be mild,
Dressed up
And styled
Into a sweet
Sunday sermon.

If Jesus lives within your heart, He’s giving you specific inner promptings to lead and guide you throughout the day. Learn to recognize and follow His loving voice.

Jesus is the Sender. Let Him bend your will so that every moment He can send you where He wants you to be.

I’ve been watching a squirrel out on a high limb, calmly resting and waiting for his next assignment. I’m impatient and want him to move on, but he still sits. I want to learn to wait on Jesus like that.

Every morning present yourself to Jesus to be sent to do His will throughout the day. It’s spiritually dangerous to turn your faith over to a church or to a pastor. Revival happens when people let Jesus free them from the control of religious tradition.

Revival is often
Tiny crowds,
Very small groups
Of two or three
Who gather
To experience 
Beautiful liberty
In Christ.

If you're a Christian
Then you've been sent
To be Spirit-led;
To demonstrate
And to spread
The reality of
Christ in you.

I'm not a fan of Lent.
Every day of the year
We need to repent,
To reorient
Our mind and heart
To the living Jesus
And be led and sent
By Him.

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!
