Christian Rap — We’ve Gotta Live In The Spirit

(An original Christian rap.)

Words are okay, but the Gospel’s a new way, of livin’.

It’s not enough just to hear it, we’ve gotta live in the Spirit.

We need to follow & obey the One who is the Way,

Everyday!  Everyday!  Everyday!

It’s not easy to live the Gospel.  For example, 2 people cannot be in control of the same thing at the same time.  (Instead of 2 pilots flying one airplane, airlines use a pilot and a copilot.)  If a someone is in control of a his/her life, then God isn’t.  We have to let God be our boss, not just our adviser.

We need help living the Gospel — we need Christian community.  If a human being is in control of a church meeting, then the Divine Being is left to copilot.  However, if the human lets go of his agenda (or program) and allows the meeting to flow in the Spirit, God will show up and show out.

So what is God’s agenda for a church meeting?  It is explained in the New Testament; I Corinthians 14:26.

Some people say that this verse is impractical — that it won’t work.  However, it is working every week in Nashville at The Salvation Army Berry Street Worship Center.  Come and see for yourself:  Sunday mornings @ 10:45 & Thursday nights @ 6:30, 225 Berry Street, Nashville, 37207.

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 co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We 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 called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @
