Prepare the way of the Lord (aka Get out of God’s way!)

Make way! Make way! Jesus is coming through. If you will get your stuff out of His way, He will do the same things in and through you that He did in the Bible!

prepare the way of the Lord

“Prepare the way for the Lord; make straight paths for Him.” —John the Baptist

The living, resurrected Jesus is present and active in the 21st Century. He wants to do much more than we let Him, but we have put too much in his way. However, if we clear the way for Him by removing whatever is holding Him back in our lives we will see Jesus do amazing things in and through us.

How can we prepare the way for the Lord? How can we get out of God’s way?

“If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” –2 Chronicles 7:14

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
