Don’t settle for Christiapathy

It’s easy to miss out on miracles if you’re not willing to look for one. A dead church is out of sync with the risen Jesus. It saddens me that church services are often run as if Jesus is dead and gone, instead of present and active in the room.

Christ died and rose so that our dead ends can become U-turns. I believed that I was a good person, until I began to read the Bible and God showed me my own heart. Now I’m thankful for mercy and the opportunity for U-turns.

Christianity was never meant to be Christiapathy. It should produce fire in the soul! If you want to live with passion, let the risen Jesus inspire you into action!

Much taboo about nothing isn’t a good thing, but much taboo about evil is. Good and evil are not divided between good people and bad people, but are within us all.

We live in a culture where it’s hard to tell who is telling the truth and quite easy to get faked out. Neither accusation nor denial determines truth. A “good person” would always think, say, and do the right thing, whether anyone is watching or not. Unfortunately, any human is capable of doing bad things.

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
