Inside Addition — The Key To A Beautiful Life

Inside addition (not Inside Edition) is the key to a beautiful life.  However, it’s not automatic.  It all depends on which mathematical formula you follow:

Self + pride = hypocrisy

Self + fear or worry = torment

Self + anger = bitterness & misery

Self + negativity = depression

Self + wrongdoing = guilt & alienation

Self + vulgarity = cynicism

Self + religion = false security

-Self + the living Christ = ongoing peace, freedom & transformation

(“Deny yourself,” “The truth shall set you free,” If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature.”)

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
