When Jesus is revealed in your heart

For too many Christians the presence of the risen Jesus has become rarefied instead of being verified and ratified by personal revelation and by a lifestyle that demonstrates His reality. Revelation makes reveals His reality!

Revelation is when spiritual eyes open and an inner awareness of the presence and identity of the living Jesus resounds within a human heart. Revelation occurred when Peter proclaimed to Jesus: “You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God.” It happened when the resurrected Jesus walked the road to Emmaus with two broken hearted disciples who didn’t recognize Him until the moment that He took a loaf of bread and broke it in two. Revelation happened when Paul took the road to Damascus to persecute and arrest Christians there, but on the way was transformed when he saw a light and heard the risen Jesus call His name.

Almost 2,000 years later, revelation happened to me. I went to a Christian meeting in a college dorm and heard two people tell how the risen Jesus had changed their lives. In an instant Jesus became real to me and has been my constant companion and the joy and desire of my heart ever since.

There’s no high like the Most High! Jesus is the Most High God, the Creator of the Universe in human flesh! When that revelation resounds within you, you will never be the same!

Put and keep humble obedience to the risen Jesus first, far above every other desire and interest, not only in words, but also in thought and behavior. The fruit of the Spirit dries up when passionate Christ-followers let Jesus’ inner rivers of living water become an ex-stream situation.

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!
