Hang your hang-ups on the Cross

berry-st-cross

You’ve looked to many things for happiness. Why not pursue the risen Jesus? Don’t be afraid to read the Book that makes fear disappear! Here’s why the “World English Bible” never mentions church: http://amzn.to/2me8rYd.

Without intimate heart connections with the living Jesus & with one another, church is just another meeting. But there’s tremendous power in small, Jesus-led groups, “where two or three gather in My name.”

Beyond religion taught by man, there’s faith revealed directly by Jesus. (Gal. 1:12) When Christ-followers meet & rely on the Spirit, an invisible Leader takes over.

Be solar powered — soak up the Sonshine! The risen will Jesus refract the light of faith right in front of your spiritual eyes.

Hope in the risen Jesus is infinitely more reasonable than hope in a lottery ticket. To hope in the lottery instead of hoping in Christ, is to choose preposterous odds. His truth needs no validation–no name dropping–no appeal to hierarchy.

We can hang all our hang-ups on the Cross and be set free! (The picture on this post is the Berry Street Cross. Drive by and see it for yourself @ the corner of Berry & Meridian streets in East Nashville — 225 Berry St., Nashville 37207.)

Don’t just talk to God. Listen with your heart and let Him talk to 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 @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
