Grace Gets The Hell Out!

Grace is not permission to live like Hell and go to Heaven. Grace is the power to get the Hell out of your life! Got grace? “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”

Grace is a U-turn.  It is true repentance and transformation.

Grace is not a doctrine or a teaching.  It is an experience that continually burns in your heart.  Grace is contagious and spreads God’s fire to others.

Grace is free, but not cheap.  It cost the Cross!

Grace is free, but not easy–it’s like a mountain climb.  It is free hike up Pike’s Peak in Colorado, but it is one of the hardest things to do!

Grace is free like hiking up Pike's Peak.  However, both are difficult and require much effort!

Grace is free like hiking up Pike’s Peak. However, both are difficult and require much effort!

Many choose to be naive about experiencing God. That is the worst naivety.

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
