Jesus’ inner energy changes perspectives

Steady streams 
Of inner energy
Entered me
When Jesus
Entered my heart.


Delight & felicity
Aren't found through folly
But forged by faith.


Jesus can make
Joy the norm
In your life.
Even in a storm.

How can church members be of one heart and one mind, if they only hear from one preacher and not from one another? We don’t need somebody to continually tell us about Jesus. Instead we need to continually experience Him for ourselves.

If we’re not growing closer to Jesus and becoming more like Him, then we aren’t following Jesus. I find amazing joy in reading the Bible and being in awe of the truths it shows me as it connects with my heart.

When people experience and testify about Jesus, they get far more excited about Him than if they just hear a talk about Jesus. Wealth, entertainment, sex, intoxication, power, fame — these aren’t the way to lasting joy and contentment. Jesus is the way.

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
