Letting church cruise on Christ-contol

Across the USA church is in decline. Perhaps it is time to set church on Christ-control and let Jesus freely cruise trough the meeting. There’s nothing like a Christ-led gathering when we put aside human agendas and control and simply let the living, resurrected Jesus lead us!

The New Testament calls church on Christ-control by the Greek word ekklesia. Ekklesia was the town meeting of ancient Greek city-states. It was an open forum where anyone could speak. Jesus adopted this idea when he said “I will build My ekklesia.” Paul instructed the early Christ-followers to gather based on the concept of ekklesia when he wrote: “When you come together, each one of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has another language, has an interpretation. Let all things be done to build each other up.” –1 Corinthians 14:26 in the World English Bible (Learn more about ekklesia @ this link.)

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
