Laying down the mic of self-righteousness

Let’s drop the mic of our opinions, feelings, desires, and self-righteousness and begin to be led by God’s Spirit in all that we think, say, and do. The redemption that came by Christ Jesus gives us supernatural inner power to do that. Miracles happen when Christians lay down the mic of self-righteousness.

Righteousness (both right standing with God and the power to demonstrate right/holy living) is given to people who continually rely on the living Jesus by courageously stepping out and walking in faith rather than exerting mere human effort. They become people who believe in the risen Jesus so much that they trust in and obey His inner guidance (instead of their own understanding, emotions, and desires) moment by moment. The Bible calls that lifestyle one that is “led by the Spirit” and declares that the people who live that way are “the children of God.” See Romans 8:14.

No matter where you go, you’re always mic’d up to God. He hears it all!

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!
