Let your heart open like a flower.

Flowers open in sunlight. Human hearts open in Christ’s light. Someone with a closed heart is avoiding Christ’s inner light. Being closed-hearted isn’t self-protection. It’s self-isolation.

Until we are willing to humbly open our heart to the living Jesus and to other Christ-followers, we won’t truly experience the supernatural unity and heart-to-heart community of the body of Christ. When “hearts unfold like flowers” in the presence of the living Jesus, amazing love and joyful adoration abound.

When Christians who have their heart open interact with each other, they experience supernatural unity and community.

Biblical Christianity is more than a theological belief system. It’s believing in the risen Jesus so much that you surrender your life to Him and actually let Him live within you — leading, empowering, and directing you day by day. Rivers of living water flow from my heart singing praises to God.

I believe that Christianity is about creating a Christ-filled atmosphere where people feel safe and free to open wide their heart. If Christ is living in you and in me, we are united by His inner presence. If we are unaware of our unity, one or both of us has a closed heart.

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!
