Google Jesus

If the presence of the risen Jesus isn’t continually surging from within you like rivers of living water, you’re missing out on “Christ in you, the hope of glory.” To present Jesus as stuck in history, in Heaven, or in a church is to deny the good news of His current presence everywhere. People who passionately love Jesus experience a supernatural connection when they open their heart to each other.

To do what you want is to seek the kingdom of self. To do what God wants is to seek the kingdom of God.

I want to let the Holy Spirit freely move me about the way leaves let the wind move them about. I want to be prompted by God’s Spirit not by my desires. If others want them, that’s their choice but I ban from my mind books and media that promote ungodliness.

Christianity isn’t about accumulating religious information week after week. It’s about opening your heart wider and wider to Jesus. Once you experience Spirit-led heart connection with other Christ-followers it’s hard to be satisfied with spectator religion.

“Looking unto Jesus.” Jesus is the Light. He should never, even for a moment, be a sight unseen.

If hearing
And obeying Jesus
Isn’t the way you go
You’ll live your days
Dazed by vertigo,
And the things
You think
That you know
Will throw
Your life off course.

When you allow your desire
To compel and require
That you follow its path
You’ll say stuck in the mire
Of striving to feed
The consuming inner fire
Of self-focus.

The living Jesus
Isn’t a topic to discuss
On a church “campus.”
He’s present with us
And wants to
Personally lead us.

When people’s input
Isn’t allowed
Church becomes
A silent crowd
Confined to listen
To only one man’s perspective.

Unseen light
Makes the brightest day
Seem like night.
Without physical sight
And spiritual insight,
Life is full of fright.
Have courage to see
How good life can be.

Google Jesus
All day long
Not on a device,
But in your heart.
He offers His glory
Like a song
To stream in your soul.
He paid the cost
To make you whole.
Let Him ever flow
From within you
And have full control
Of your daily life.

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!
