Shocking! Christianity Is Current Events

Christianity is the current of the living, resurrected Jesus Christ flowing through His people.  It’s not religion, ritual, doctrine, or tradition.

Church is living Christianity operating among human beings.  The living Christ cannot be controlled and contained but cruises through His people like an electric current; unless we break the connection and quench the Spirit.  Church is like a group of people all holding on to a live electric wire.

Therefore, Christianity is current events — events produced by the current of Jesus Christ flowing from within His people.  When there is no Christ current, there is no Christianity (or church).

Christianity carries the Spirit’s current; church is not a showcase for religious programming but a demonstration of the living Christ working among real people.  It is radical obedience to Jesus, not passively listening to a message about Him.

Is the living current of Christ flowing in and through you or do you have a dead battery under your hood?   “Christ in you, the hope of glory.”

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
