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. I have written two books: Mindrobics: How To Be Happy For The Rest Of Your Life and Your Sperm Won--Experiencing Your Value As A Championship Human Being. 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 lead a non-traditional church in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the early church come to life in our time.
