Can the devil throw you with a stone?

Attune to
Christ in you.
Let Him guide
From inside
Your heart.
Be Spirit-led,
Not desire-led;
Not temptation-led.

Beware of the devil’s stumbling stones! What you let Christ do in you is much more powerful than what you try to do for yourself.

A plastic surgeon can’t make your soul beautiful, but the living Jesus can!

A degree can’t remove the debris from your life, but the risen Jesus can!

Travel can’t unravel the messes you’ve made, but Christ can set you free!

Binge watching your favorite movies or series can’t help you overcome your problems, but binging on Christ’s presence can!

A drink or two, or even a few or a slew, won’t overcome your pain, but Christ can!

Denial can’t remove your guilt, but Jesus can!

Entertainment can’t give you lasting inner peace, but Christ living in you can!

Shopping won’t buy you happiness, but the risen Jesus can give you joy!

Being in a crowd won’t end the loneliness deep inside of you, but Jesus can!

Neither fine dining nor non-stop snacking can satisfy the hunger in your soul, but Jesus can.

A big house doesn’t guarantee a loving home, but Christ can create caring community in any family.

Drugs can’t permanently end the torment within you, but the risen Jesus can!

Passivity won’t stop your discouragement, but the risen Christ can!

Sermon-hearing won’t empower you to live a godly life, but the risen Jesus can!

Music can’t keep your heart singing, but Christ in you can!

A tattoo in your skin can’t undo your shame, but Christ living in you can!

More and more money won’t keep you happy inside, but the living Jesus can!

Physical exercise won’t expel the demons from your mind, but Jesus can!

A costly sports car can’t transport you to unending love, but Christ can!

Sex can’t thrill you with never-ending joy, but Christ in you can!

Hanging out in a bar won’t bar depression from your life, but Jesus can!

Watching sports can’t keep you always rejoicing, but Jesus can!

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!
