If you’re a Christian, you’re a Christ-called missionary!

Every Christian is a Christ-called missionary sent to be a bright light who demonstrates the presence of Jesus to the world. To truly accept Christ is to embrace His calling to be His minister and missionary to those around you.

Churches are full of people who are Christ-called to be His missionaries but have been trained to ignore God’s Spirit. Let’s face it! As a Christian, you’re a Christ-called missionary, not just a passive sermon-hearer! It’s time to get out of religiosity and get going for Jesus!

Contemporary culture conspires to freeze your heart and make it as hard as ice. Let the warmth of the living Jesus melt the hardness in your heart until you overflow with inner rivers of living water. Train your heart to listen to and obey God’s Spirit, not the voice of temptation.

Instead of letting darkness distract, entangle, and deceive us we need to focus on setting hurt people free. Train your ears to hear the sound of the Spirit, moving like the wind within your heart and directing you with gentle nudges.

If you converse
With tempting thoughts
They will immerse
And coerce
You with
Rebellious desires.
Instead rebuke
Resist and refute
Until you boot
Them out.

If you don’t learn
To resist
And refute
The lies of temptation,
They’ll lead you to live
Like a brute.

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!
