What if church set people free go and serve God?

Is Jesus the controlling Head (Lord) of your church or has He been put into honored retirement? Too, often church is like a football team that always keeps their quarterback on the sidelines. Bring Jesus off the bench!

It’s one thing to conduct a church service about the Lord Jesus. It’s something different to let Jesus be the Lord of the meeting. Instead of following a program, church could meet & follow the living Jesus.

Churches tend gather people and keep them dependent on a preacher instead of sending them out to change the world. Church needs to empower and release people; not keep them entangled in outdated & ineffective programs.

Jesus is as ready to manifest His presence & power in the 21st century as He was in the first. Let Him! Jesus wants to liberate & bring light to sin-influenced minds. Christianity began as a Spirit-led Jesus movement, not as a religious organization.

It’s hard to read the New Testament and not at least wonder what happened to the passion and power, that “turned the world upside down.” When I read the New Testament, the awesome power of early Christianity stirs in my heart and I long to see it restored in our day!

Some Christians say that God stopped doing miracles when the apostles died. That seems like a rationalization for unbelief. To say miracles stopped when the apostles died, ignores many Scriptures and millions of miracles Christ has done for 2,000 years.

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
