Easter Means Jesus Is Actively Engaged In The 21st Century

What does the risen Jesus do today? In the 21st Century, Jesus . . .
* Transforms hopeless people into passionate, faith-filled Christ-followers!
* Takes captives to feelings, cravings, and compulsions and sets them free!
* Speaks to people and gives them amazing insights and instructions!
* Makes the Bible come alive and burn in people’s hearts!
* Releases people from guilt and shame and gives a fresh start!
* Gives people power to live a victorious, fulfilled life.
* Manifests His presence through supernatural gifts of the Spirit.
* Heals both emotional trauma and physical illness.
And . . . * Directly leads church meetings, like a conductor directing an orchestra.
— However, the living Jesus will do few of these things if we resist Him, intentionally disobey Him, and/or disbelieve Him. “Quench not the Spirit!”
? Will you let Jesus work on and in you?

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
