Going back to the future (in the Spirit)

Yesterday I stood on the spot where I first encountered the living, resurrected Jesus Christ in the lobby of Ellington Hall at The University of Tennessee Martin. On that spot 44 years ago, God put a blazing fire in my heart and today my passion for Him is still burning ever stronger!

When I first encountered the living, resurrected Jesus Christ while standing on that spot, I was swept up in a campus spiritual movement of love, friendship, passion for God, spiritual revelation, community, confession and repentance, compassion for others, openness, tears, rejoicing, celebration, spiritual warfare, bold proclamation by ordinary people, mysticism, and great hunger and thirst for God. The movement burned brightly for awhile and then faded away. But it has never left my heart. I’m soaring in the Spirit, hungering and thirsting for God, seeking more of His presence and His power that will release a spiritual contagion that will spread around the world and infect millions with passionate love for and obedience to the living, resurrected Jesus.  

 

I believe that a great spiritual awakening is about to begin in Nashville that will shake our city and the nations!

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
