Judgement, Guilt, Sorrow, Mercy, Forgiveness

Where there is no judgment;
There is no mercy.
Where there is no guilt;
There is no grace.
If you haven’t been judged guilty,
There is no forgiveness.

Where there is no threat of punishment, there is no justice.

Where there is no sorrow, there is no repentance.

Where there has been no bondage, there is no being set free.

Where there has been no sin, there is no salvation from sin.

God is not a thought in a human mind.
He is an actual, living Being;
Present and active,
Yet frequently overlooked,
In human consciousness.
Be still and know that I am God.”

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
