Imitator or Radiator? (Awash In The World or Aflame For God?)

Are you a radiator spreading the presence and power of Christ to the people around you or an imitator following the influence of popular culture?

Are you transforming your friends, neighbors, coworkers and community by godly influence or are you conforming to them and their values?

Are you a salesperson persuading people to daily follow and obey the living, resurrected Jesus Christ, or are you a prospect being sold a bill of good to follow and obey your own desires and cravings?

Are you a thermometer being controlled by your environment or a thermostat, influencing your environment to come up to God’s standards.

Are you a missionary spreading God’s truth with your words and your lifestyle or a mission field being converted to ungodliness?

Are you awash in the world’s messages, media, and lifestyle or aflame with the passion to live a life of obedience to Christ and to share His message with the world.

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
