Let’s come together & let Christ, the Invisible Choreographer, take direct control. When Christians meet to all follow the Invisible Choreographer, miracles happen.
The risen Jesus is the uncurriculum. He’s the Way–follow Him. A program, agenda, or curriculum should never take the place of the risen Christ.
When a preacher emcees a meeting, what’s left for the risen Jesus to do? If we will let go & let Jesus emcee a worship meeting, we will see amazing things! (Let JC B the MC.)
Let Jesus be
His own emcee
The only Head
Of His body!
The risen Jesus can be His own host. Worship doesn’t need a human cheerleader.
Too many want to be minimalist Christians when Jesus wants our all. A little bit of Christianity, like a little bit of air, won’t keep you going.
Sharing heart-felt love with one another is more powerful than religious programs. Jesus lives in His followers’ hearts, however, when your heart is shut down, then Christ is hidden. Christ in me, makes me want to avoid even the appearance of wrong doing.
Ekklesia is a gym for the soul, a Christ-led group-work-out for spiritual fitness. Ekklesia is a gathering of hearts open to Jesus, willing to do what He prompts them. It is a place of open hearts, open caring, & open sharing. In ekklesia the living Jesus is the Master of Ceremonies.
In His ekklesia
Christ gives you
A part to play,
An active role,
Something to say.
All Christ-followers are clergy
Called to minister
To one another
And share God’s Good News.
All Christians are
Preachers, prophets, & priests;
Not one-person shows,
But parts of Christ’s body
Alive to show God’s love
As light houses in darkness.
–A cool “Call To Worship”–
The preacher stands up and says:
“Today Jesus is going to be the emcee,
So I’m going to sit down and you guys
Listen to Jesus and then say and/or do
What He says.”
Church focuses on explanation; ekklesia on manifestation. Church tends to focus on weekly God-talks, while silencing people’s God experiences. Church formality tends to shut down the spontaneous flow of love in Christ’s body.
