Revival seeks to return us to the original “awe-dition” of Christianity

We need the awe edition of Christianity, not the spectator version. Christians are awe-ditory learners. We don’t really know Jesus unless we allow our heart to be overwhelmed by His presence.

Instead of being an audience church attendees need to be an awe-dience completely enthralled by the presence of Jesus. Christianity is not a democracy. It’s an awe-tocracy. It was originally about boldness and awe in following Jesus. Now it’s too often about sitting through the dullness of a religious routine.

Let God sign His awe-tograph on your heart! Open up to God’s awe-flowing inner fountain. Let God awe-dit your heart! The sameness and tameness of Sunday morning Christianity makes spiritual zombies out of too many Christians! By suppressing Spirit-led spontaneity, churches have taken the surprise out of Christianity and replaced it with routine.

Tune in to God’s awe-dio and listen to the still small sound of His voice speaking inside your heart. Step inside of God’s awe-tomobile and let the awareness of the risen Jesus transport you to and keep you in His presence. Be careful that you don’t love church more than you love Jesus.

We need the awe-dacity to obey and proclaim Jesus no matter what people think about us! Christians should be overflowing with Jesus-inspired AWE–Astonishing Wonder Experiences! An audience of lifeless Christians has always made me bored.

Churches often hide God’s awe by refusing to allow people to stand up and openly testify about the miraculous things that God has done for them. Too many Christians instead of being overwhelmed by God’s majesty are underwhelmed by tightly controlled church services.

Revival recovers and restores the majestic awe of God that true Christ-followers once experienced but drifted away from. Let your heart be in awe of God, not just occasionally or momentarily but consistently throughout every day.

Life is wonderful when I stay awe-filled with the presence of Jesus! When I first experienced Jesus, He awe-tomatically changed my heart and I’ve never been the same!

Revival happens when Christians gather and cultivate an environment of freedom and awe where people can personally interact with Jesus. Pride consumes awe and leaves us patting ourselves on the back instead of falling at Jesus feet in radical humility. Don’t stay stuck. Search for Jesus moments!

Revival is beyond church. You won’t find it in a program or sermon. It begins in human hearts. 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!
