Every Generation Has A Few Who Flew The Pew To Go And Do

What turns a person from a Sunday bench warmer into a spiritual reformer?  That’s a good question.

Fortunately there are a few individuals in most every generation who are inspired to take the Gospel from the pew to the do.  For those people, the Bible is not a lecture book, but a dynamic, new-lifestyle instruction manual — Basic Instructions for a Better Life Experience.

As a manual, the Bible is designed to train a person to engage in practical, hands-on application of knowledge (rather than merely dispensing details).  The Bible does not present facts to learn as much as simple steps to follow:  “Go and sin no more,” “Bless those who curse you,” “Consider others better than yourself.”

Of course, the Bible’s steps are quite uncomfortable and challenging.  They are very difficult to follow without a lot of help.  That’s why, as believers, we have a guide inside, the Holy Spirit, to coach us, mentor us, and empower us to get up and actually do the things that we have heard while sitting in the pew.

Are you part of the few who do?  Or are you sitting with the off-duty crew watching from the pew?

Come, experience a place where everybody is welcome to be “a doer of the word and not just a hearer,” where people are welcome to read a Scripture, share an insight, give a testimony, say a prayer, flow in a gift of the Spirit; all as the Holy Spirit directs them:

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. I have written two books: Mindrobics: How To Be Happy For The Rest Of Your Life and Your Sperm Won--Experiencing Your Value As A Championship Human Being. 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 lead a non-traditional church in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the early church come to life in our time.
