Who’s really in charge in church?

When Jesus is really the Head of His body:

  • He is the One who gets all the praise and adoration; none of the praise is given to others.
  • Christ is really and truly the One allowed to take control of the mic in church!
  • The Leader is invisible to the eyes but obeyed from the heart.
  • He personally leads and directs the members of His body when they gather in His name.
  • A meeting follows Him instead of a program or agenda.
  • Things are outside of human control, but secure in His hands.
  • People are aware of and moved by His presence.
  • He alone is in charge of the meeting.
  • It’s obvious that something supernatural is going on.
  • He’s free to prompt anyone present to speak.
  • A meeting can get uncomfortable because He doesn’t follow our program but His own.

When Jesus
Is the Head,
Christians let
“Christ in you”
Tell them what
To say and do.

When Jesus
Is the Head,
Meetings are
And what is
Done and said
Is prompted
By His presence.

The Bible is like a Jack-in-the-box. When I open it with a humble hungry heart, the risen Jesus pops out and fills me with His presence. Now let’s let Jesus jump out and fill gatherings of His people with His presence and control that overrides human leadership!

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!
