Have a Spirit-filled, hippity hoppity Easter!

Have a hippity hoppity Easter! Hop out of religious formalism and into daily interaction with and obedience to the risen Jesus.

Christ-centered Christianity is continually conscious of the presence and power of the risen Jesus! Happy Resurrection Day! Church history shows that Christianity gradually drifted from individuals daily and passionately interacting with and obeying the living Jesus to holding the annual, formalized commemoration of His resurrection that we call Easter.

First century word of mouth took news about Jesus viral. Soon the good news of the risen Jesus was trending and generating persecution around the Roman Empire and even in the world beyond its borders.

Then over the next few centuries the glorious news about the active presence of the resurrected Jesus was institutionalized and replaced with a ritualized religious formalism that removed passionate commitment to the living Jesus from everyday life. The spiritual habit of being continually aware of and obedient to “Christ in you” that made Christ-followers a force to be reckoned with became so rare that the few people who had the habit which every Christian needs were canonized as “saints.”

Now hippity hoppity and dare to be Christ’s Spirit-led oddity! Hippity hoppity, surrender your life and become Christ’s property!

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!
