There’s never enough confetti to heal an empty heart.

An empty heart doesn’t appreciate Jesus’ empty tomb, but a heart full of His presence continually celebrates His resurrection! Discover the risen Jesus this week, not on a church calendar but with your heart! There’s never enough confetti to heal an empty heart!

The resurrected Jesus wants to build people who have experienced heart-changing, God-given insight, into Spirit-led community. When the body of Christ gathers as a Spirit-led community the presence and power of the risen Jesus begins to be revealed.

There are no time or location limits on Spirit-led community. Jesus can connect people heart-to-heart anytime and anyplace they’re willing to humbly and honestly open up to Him and to each other. Part-time Christianity is uncomfortable with Spirit-led community because it has no time constraints — no on and off button.

Spirit-led community openly demonstrates the reality of the resurrected Jesus. That’s because it allows Him to shine in and through people’s hearts, words, and actions.

Biblical Christianity is a full-time job. Part-time Christianity tries to squeeze by on a couple of hours per week or less. It takes very little time to be a part-time Christian, but all the time in the world isn’t enough to find a biblical justification for being one.

Even when you’re twisting
And resisting
What God’s saying,
He’s not desisting
But insisting
On persisting
In assisting
And pursuing you
In love.
Peace comes when you
Start untwisting
Your heart
By daily submitting
To God’s will
And boldly resisting
The devil’s.

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!
