Live it up with fervor, avidity, passion, & ardor!

Heart-felt faith
Follows Jesus with fervor,
Prays with passion,
Adores with ardor.

Maybe church could focus folks’ attention on the risen Jesus instead of on a pastor. An interactive, personal relationship with the risen Jesus is amazing.

Let God put insatiable avidity for Jesus in your heart & you’ll never be the same! Faith in Jesus produces a holy-hallelujah lifestyle — not a ho-hum one! Religion presents God’s Son as humdrum; but faith in Jesus is electrifying!

“Casual faith” is an oxymoron. Faith in Christ is all consuming! Be avid about Jesus. Don’t avoid Him. Love for Jesus is contagious & the sooner you catch it, the more you’ll enjoy life.

Jesus is the only app that can satisfy you! Install Him & let Him run your life. Like a Mexican jumping bean jumps by a life within, let Jesus do the jumping in you.

I can’t be like Jesus if I don’t stop being like me. (That’s called “repentance.”) God installed a spiritual fitbit (called a conscience) in everyone. Many ignore it.

The best leader is the one who humbly models letting the living Jesus be the Leader. The world’s greatest leader is the risen Jesus. Follow Him & you won’t go wrong.

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
