Tattoos, Texting, Talk Radio, Polls, Piercings, Social Media, Reality TV & Other Self-Expression

In our contemporary culture of constant, clamoring self-expression (tattoos, texting, talk radio, opinion polls, piercings, social media, reality TV, etc.), there’s no reason Christ-followers shouldn’t courageously and continually express their faith in Christ!

I LOVE JESUS! HE’S AWESOME! I WANT TO FOLLOW AND OBEY HIM ALL THE DAYS OF MY LIFE!

Contemporary culture says: “Express yourself in whatever ways you want to.”
Jesus says: “Deny yourself, take up your cross (death to your desires), and follow Me.”

Perhaps God is so obvious that we miss Him. Perhaps His miracles happen all around us, so many times a day that we don’t even notice them.  Maybe God is speaking so clearly in our mind that we think His voice is nothing but our own thoughts and imagination.

The best sermon I’ve ever heard (or seen) is everyday people forgetting about self & ministering to one another!

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
