Programmed by God’s Prompting Presence

Perhaps instead of presenting a pre-planned program, we could let a church meeting be programmed by God’s presence prompting people to participate.  That would help us learn to let Jesus live on our lips and in our lives.

All the plumbing in your house won’t give you a drink, if the water is cut off! (And all the human programming ever designed for a Sunday morning church service won’t change human lives without the convicting presence of the Holy Spirit!)  Nothing you (or other people) can do, will satisfy your soul, if God’s living water is cut off!

Pre-planned programming places our trust in human performance, rather than in God, Himself.  Therefore we need to AKSG — Always Keep Seeking God! — both as individuals and as  churches!

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
