Where do you go to Jesus and His invisible Spirit?

Jesus is present today as the Holy Spirit. The Spirit is invisible. The Holy Spirit isn’t a doctrine to be taught but Christ’s presence to be listened to and obeyed. To be led by the Spirit we have to learn to follow invisible leadership.

Too often Christians treat the Holy Spirit like a myth instead of as present reality. Ignoring the Holy Spirit is one way of quenching the Spirit.

God’s invisible leader doesn’t speak from the front of a church service, but from within the heart. Follow the Spirit. A meeting where everybody is free to hear and obey the Spirit will demonstrate the reality of invisible leadership.

Visible Christian leaders need to train believers to follow and obey the invisible Leader in their heart — the Holy Spirit. Christ-followers are full of powerful spiritual apps that they’ve never learned to fully use.

True faith knows Jesus, grows in relationship with Jesus, and flows in the Spirit with Jesus. It’s takes less focus to live by habit than it does to listen to and obey the Holy Spirit.

Every Christian has a testimony about how the Spirit has worked in her/his life, but only a few are being told. Untold testimonies cripple Christinaity by keeping mighty works of God hidden in people’s hearts.

For me, the existence of a Creator of everything is much more logical than the idea that nothing produced everything. Everybody has the right to disapprove of other people’s beliefs & behaviors, but nobody has the right to be mean to people. If you respect yourself you won’t need to use a title to try to get other people’s respect but you can humbly follow the Spirit.

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
