Spontaneous vs. Spiritaneous


To be spontaneous is be unconstrained by fear or tradition and to be willing to act on an inner impulse or inclination, without planning or external stimulus.

To be Spiritaneous is to be unconstrained by fear or tradition and to be willing to act on an inner prompting of the Holy Spirit, without planning or external stimulus.

To live Spiritaneously is to hear the inner voice of the Holy Spirit and obey His leadings. The New Testament puts it this way: “Those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.” –Romans 8:14

For centuries Christians have met together to passively sit and listen to a formal presentation of pious platitudes presented by one man. Perhaps it is time for Christ-followers to begin to meet together and be Spiritaneous according to the New Testament concept of ekklesia as described in 1 Corinthians 14:26.

Come on! Let’s be Spiritaneous. (Too much programming quenches the Holy Spirit.) Only by Spiritaneity can you be who God planned you to be.

Learn to be Spiritaneous with us @ The Salvation Army Berry Street in Nashville, Tennessee. We meet every Sunday morning @ 10:45 — 225 Berry St., 37207.


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
