Hope from the writings of the first Christ-followers

My heart dances with excitement and hops with hope when I read the writings of the first Christ-followers. They reveal truth. Read them daily & see! Open your heart to the writings of the first Christ-followers (WFCF) & be renewed.

The WFCF (Writings of the First Christ-Followers) were gathered together as the New Testament. Regularly reading the NT with an open heart transformed my life and continues to fill me with peace and power. The WAH (Writings of Ancient Hebrews) go together with the WFCF to make up the most powerful book in the world — the Bible!

Without supernatural revelation, Christianity is just one of many religions. The first Christ-followers actually encountered the living Jesus (Emmanuel–God with us) and His supernatural revelation. They wrote their experiences down.

The Holy Spirit gives direct supernatural revelation to those who are willing to turn from self to Him. The Spirit also makes the revelation contained in the Bible come alive and burn in the hearts of those who dare to read it and obey it as a love letter from God!

To disregard the Bible is to disregard the foundations of true Christianity. To put our feelings & opinions above the Bible leads to deception.

The risen Jesus makes the Bible come to life and ignites it to burn in our heart! “They asked each other, ‘Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?'” –Luke 24:32

The Bible is the handbook that can train us to follow & obey the risen Jesus. Setting aside the Bible for our own opinions isn’t true Christianity.

Take this challenge. Everyday for at least 5 minutes, for 21 days, read the writings of the first Christ-followers, without missing a day. If you do this, Jesus will do amazing things in you life. Try it and see!

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
