If the mayor should run his city council, shouldn’t Jesus run His church (ekklesia)?

–If someone ignored the mayor and began to run and control a city council meeting as if the mayor wasn’t even there, how would the mayor feel?
–When someone ignores the living, risen Jesus and begins to run and control a church meeting like Jesus isn’t even there, what does Jesus feel? (WDJF?) http://amzn.to/22hrxu4

–If someone ignored the President of the USA and began to run and control his cabinet as if the President wasn’t in the room, how would he feel?  What if Jesus is patiently waiting for us to realize that He can run a church service better than the best preacher in a pulpit?

–How long must Jesus wait before He’s allowed to be the actual Head of church meetings? If we allow Jesus to run and control a church meeting, He will guide it into the Greek New Testament concept of ekklesia, which was the name of the city council in ancient Greek city-states.

–If you have ever wondered if church can ever vary from the traditional model of being run from the front of the room, you need to experience The Salvation Army Berry Street — 225 Berry St., Nashville, 37207 on Sundays at 10:45.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. I have written two books: Mindrobics: How To Be Happy For The Rest Of Your Life and Your Sperm Won--Experiencing Your Value As A Championship Human Being. 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 lead a non-traditional church in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the early church come to life in our time.
