A Joy-Filled Lifestyle

Jesus said that when we come to Him,
There will be within us a well of water
Springing up with eternal life
And all of its glorious qualities,
Far better than any self-sought pleasures.
This ongoing inner release of the Holy Spirit
Is not a religious doctrine or belief;
But a glorious and joy-filled lifestyle
That keeps one continually
Intoxicated with God!

(Inspired by Jesus’ interaction with the woman at the well.)

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
