Is it time to cut the religious parachute?


By making Christianity a formality, we took the power out of it. (2 Timothy 3:5) Shallow Christianity is like shallow breathing–minimal breath’s not enough!

Jesus makes ordinary moments extraordinary & turns everyday people into emissaries! No need to be stuck who & where you are. Jesus will change your life if you let Him. Don’t settle for a slow drip when Jesus promised inner rivers of living water. My spiritual battery charger is Jesus. Without Him I quickly lose power. Christ’s not a religious parachute. He’s the very meaning of life!

Sight–the eyes have it. But insight comes from listening to Christ in your heart. Void of God, secularism succumbs to emptiness, triviality, & meaninglessness.

When we talk about Jesus people should hear excitement in our voice! Why should people be more excited about their favorite sports team or rock band than we are about the living, resurrected Jesus Christ?

Perhaps it’s time to cut the religious chute and put all our heart and trust in Jesus! Need help cutting the chute? This will help you!

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 @

  1. Steve,

    I agree! Religion is a barrier to rather than a facilitator of relationships.
