An Army Is Not An Audience!

Meeting to wait on the Lord is different than meeting to follow a program. However, meeting that way is off the beaten path of religious Christianity. The body of Christ is called to assemble as an army actively obeying its Commander — the risen Jesus — not just as an audience.

The Kingdom of God has a powerful army, “fighting the good fight of faith.” Are you an active part of God’s army? The Kingdom Of God first; above all other nations. (Matthew 6:33)

Jesus is like a power outlet. To receive His power we must plug in & let His current freely flow through us when we gather for worship and when we are alone.

Don’t just sit and mope; get up and hope! Many surrender to drugs to try & feel good. I surrender to Jesus & feel great! Getting on the innernet and live streaming Jesus is amazing! There’s no better addiction than addiction to spending time with the risen Jesus! Follow & obey the risen, biblical Jesus; not “another Jesus.” (2 Corinthians 11:4)

Christ-followers are called
Beyond self-expression
To Christ-expression!

For ekklesia:
* Come together;
* Listen to the Spirit;
* Let people share what they hear.

Ekklessia express: Everyday people expressing what the Spirit is saying. To return to ekklesia is to release the free flow of the Spirit. The mistranslation of “ekklesia” as “church” has caused considerable confusion in Christianity. Jesus chose to call the gathering of His body “ekklesia” which was the name of the city council in Greek city/states, where any citizen could attend and have an equal voice with any other citizen.

Spiritual formation is not a study, but a long-term experiential process. Christianity has neglected soul refreshing, a time to actually drink of Christ’s living water. Sometimes we need Jesus to goose us to drink from His living water.

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 @
