Hope for those burned out on politics

Administrations come with fanfare. Administrations go with disappointment. It’s an ongoing cycle that can leave us discouraged.

Here’s hope for those burned out on politics . . .

Jesus prayed and taught us to pray for
An environment ruled by
The presence and prompting of God.
That environment is not just
A distant locality we reach when we die,
But a present reality encountered
In Christ-controlled community:
“Your kingdom come, your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.”
A God-ruled environment
Comes into existence
When Christ followers gather
And let Him personally build His ekklesia
(The body of Christ meeting under His direct control),
By each one listening to His voice
And then saying and doing
Whatever He tells them to.
“When you come together, each of you has . . .”
Something to share in the meeting.
“For where two or three gather in My name,
There am I with them”
Perhaps He’s present to personally run His meeting,
Not to be a spectator or an honoree.
But to rule and to reign and to set us free.
If you want to learn to pray, experience, and live “Your kingdom come,” click on my new book Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible–Ekklesia.

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
