Noticing Jesus!

And Christ in you:
All are happening today
Because He is risen indeed!

Too often the risen Jesus is unobserved. His resurrection is proclaimed but His presence isn’t noticed. We need to recognize Jesus not just hear talks about Him.

Go beyond analysis. Let awe, amazement, and adoration of the resurrected Jesus abound in and overflow from your heart. Every breath I breathe is by the graciousness and mercy of God. Not even one is earned or deserved. Every good thing in my life is an unmerited gift. Thank You, Jesus!

In the Bible the emphasis and focus of Christianity is on heart-felt relationship with Jesus and with other Christ-followers, not on being a religious audience. Jesus speaks directly to human hearts. Hear Him now! It’s much more important to hear what the risen Jesus is saying than what the church calendar is saying.

Until you’re willing to admit to Jesus that a behavior that you engage in is morally wrong, you won’t be able to truly repent from it. Tell Him now!

You won’t find Jesus
In His tomb.
Today His presence
Is everywhere
But rarely noticed
By distracted human hearts
That struggle along
Falsely feeling
Abandoned and alone.

If you want
To defy
The devil’s
Downward pull
Daily experience
And learn to rely
On the risen Jesus.
Then boldly testify
About what He’s doing
In and around you!
Revelation 12:11!

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!
