Cage free eggs or a cage free life?

Some people prefer cage free eggs more than a cage free life. If you’re stumbling over the past, you’re in a cage & going backwards.

Life becomes a mess when we begin to say yes to the wrong impulses. When we ignore God’s boundaries we go bounding headlong into bondage.

Two ways to go through life: with good sense or with nonsense. What you try to grab with your paws often doesn’t last; what you pause & let God give you does!

To think we are wise, yet make unwise choices, leaves us otherwise. Education teaches us what to know, but not how to enjoy what we know.

Surrounded by God, but unaware of His presence, people think & act like they’re alone & unaccountable for their thoughts & actions. But God’s always aware of them.

To live a self-centered life in this beautiful world is to miss out on the marvelous. The person who is full of himself has crowded out God. Christ calls us to follow Him. So why do we try to get Him to follow us?

Denial attempts to make the obvious obscure. We try to take one day at a time. God sees it all at once.

Solid faith isn’t built on what you are going to do; but on what Christ has already done! A good sermon teaches people how to follow Jesus. Discipleship shows people how to follow & trust in Jesus.

If you follow Christ, you’ll leave your comfort zone behind. To be gifted but unwilling to use your gifts is the same as being giftless.

Jesus is the way. Should we substitute our plan, our program for Him and His word?

The Bible is how God texts you. Daily read the Bible & God will begin to text you with words that vibrate in your soul.

Those who distort the Bible should at least read it first. The Holy Spirit wrote the Bible & is revealed through it. But don’t debate me; read the Bible & experience the Spirit yourself.

The Bible: it works if you work it! You don’t have to understand the Bible to obey it. You have to obey it to understand it.

The Bible is a Book full of living words that burn inside those who read it with an open heart. Daily reading the Bible transformed me from a doubter to a believer.

The Bible helps us discern the Spirit. The Spirit teaches us the Bible. We need both! Christianity is built on objective truths, not on human feelings & opinions.

If someone is trying to get you to decide between Jesus & the Bible, run. Hold to both.

Why is the Bible illegal in 52 countries? Because it is incredibly powerful! Read it daily & see for yourself.

When the Holy Spirit works a room, people’s faces & hearts are set aglow. I love to see Jesus working in & through a group of His people ministering to one another.

Life’s not about the square footage of your house; it’s about the quality of love that you share. Life’s not about your net worth. It’s about finding your place in God’s network. Learn more about God’s network @ this link.

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
