What You Know Vs. The Love You Show

Spiritual growth isn’t about how much information concerning God that you know.  It’s about how much of God’s love that you show and how much you allow the Holy Spirit to flow.

Spiritual growth isn’t about how much theological and/or religious knowledge that you accumulate.  It’s about how much you acknowledge God by surrendering to and obeying His voice.

The way to grow is not to intellectually know.  It’s easy to have lots of Biblical knowledge, but little (or no) spiritual life.

The way to grow is to go and act on what you know.  Show God’s love to everyone you encounter.  Let the Holy Spirit’s flow direct your thoughts, your emotions, and your behaviors until you glow with the glory of God.



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 @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP

  3. Thanks for clarity and confirmation. You are an awesome writer. I can’t read enough of this good stuff. I suffer from depression also, and the way I fight it is through the word of God, and love of God, that flows to me, through me, and out of me. Praise God!!.
