Room In The Inn in the 21st Century Church?

Is there room in the inn in the 21st Century church?

The New Testament teaches that the living, resurrected Jesus Christ is present when Christ-followers gather in His name (see Matthew 18:20).  So rather than following our own programming while consigning Christ to a stable in the back of the room, perhaps we should allow Him to be the One to personally lead and direct the meeting.

Since the spiritual insights of all the people present in a church meeting are far greater than any message prepared by just one man; perhaps we should allow those present in the meeting to freely express what God puts on their hearts.

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 @
