Jesus-led people experience ongoing revival

A Jesus-led person
Isn’t a fanatic
But someone who can
Help remove the static
From your relationship
With God.

I love to be around Jesus-led people who truly follow Him moment by moment! They help keep me focused on His presence. From the Jesus Revolution of the 1970s to the Asbury Revival this year, I’ve sought out and have gotten to know and interact heart to heart with many passionate Jesus-led people.

Jesus-led people radiate His presence wherever they go. They rely on Him, not on human effort. They continually wake me up spiritually and help keep me focused on the risen Jesus!

Jesus-led people live their lives in a state of ongoing revival. Spending just a few minutes interacting with Jesus-led people in His presence is more powerful than any sermon I’ve ever heard!

My favorite people are Jesus-led people. Their passion for Christ rubs off on me. I also love Jesus-led people from the past. I spend a lot of time with them thru their writings They inspire me to follow and love Jesus more and more. They are humble and embrace the Cross with joy.

Jesus-led people love to be high on Jesus, drunk with His glorious and unspeakable joy, and soaring in His Spirit. They passion for Jesus is contagious. When people allow themselves to be Jesus-led, spiritual awakening flows from deep within them.

The norms and traditions of formal religion often cause people to feel satisfied with their spiritual condition and thus keep revival far away from their heart. Don’t wait for a crowd. Be a Jesus-led revival of one and spread the reality of the risen Jesus everywhere you go.

Revival isn’t neat and tidy like a church service. It will disrupt your life.

A Christ-follower must be Spirit-led. You can’t be Jesus-led and self-led at the same time. Who’s making the decisions in your life?

Although you sing and shout with gusto if your heart isn’t continually hungry for more of Jesus, you’re not experiencing revival. If you want to experience revival the place it needs to start is in your own heart. Revival happens when you get hungry for more and more of Jesus. When there’s little hunger to know Jesus better, revival is far away.

When you are so hungry for more of Jesus that you pursue His presence throughout the day every day, revival has arrived. Don’t let it slip away. To keep your heart hungry for Jesus and revival, read the Bible and let it deeply touch your heart daily; frequently sing heart-felt worship songs directly to Jesus; continually listen to and obey God’s voice in your heart.

Jesus-led people are among us. Look for and spend time with them!

“All the way my Savior leads me.” –Fannie Crosby

“Someday life’s journey will be over,
And I shall reach that distant shore;
I’ll sing, while entering Heaven’s door,
‘Jesus led me all the way.’” –John W. Peterson
(How about you?)

Just because
It has a steeple
Doesn’t mean
A building’s full
Of Jesus-led people.

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!
