Thoughts from a Jesus addict

I’m a Jesus addict, staying high on Him & looking to start a Jesus epidemic! I’ve found that true happiness is addiction to Jesus.

Group meetings help Jesus addicts keep His fire burning in one another! O, what a relief it is to forget about self by focusing on loving Jesus & serving others!

So let’s put our religious docket in our pocket & plug into Jesus’ power socket. For a meeting to have a docket & lock it in, can often knock it off track with the Holy Spirit.

The Bible’s like a powerful drug. Soak up some Scripture & experience what it does! Jesus doesn’t just reveal Himself within us. He has also revealed Himself to the writers of the Bible. Their writings give us a solid objectivity to anchor our own inner perceptions of Christ to.

Jesus doesn’t follow our schedule; but calls us to follow Him! Shall we? It’s much better to fit your life into God’s schedule than to attempt to fit God into your schedule. It’s important we don’t confuse following Christ with following our own feelings & opinions.

Trying to schedule God is like trying to schedule the weather. It just doesn’t work! Christ puts His wisdom in all His people. Perhaps we could let them all share it as they are prompted by the Holy Spirit.

Too many people try to make Christ fit their lifestyle instead of making their lifestyle fit Christ! Don’t let your feelings push you around. Stand up to them & do what’s right! A person following his/her own opinions & desires is like a dog chasing its tail.

Faith is birthed through Christ-encounters; not just by theological reasoning! The more we obey the risen Jesus, the less we are consumed by self.

“Encourage one another & build each other up.” (1 Thes. 5:11) That’s what we do when we meet in ekklesia! Ekklesia meets with no itinerary but to hear & obey Jesus together as His body.

God is beyond human comprehension, yet my heart sings His praises! Then I strive to be faithful to the truth revealed in Scripture both in my beliefs and in my lifestyle!Jesus' power socket

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
