Let God be the organizer!

God is the best organizer ever, so we don’t need to organize worship. We just need to worship “in spirit and in truth.” When organization took over Christianity, there was no longer any need for the risen Jesus to be actively involved in church.

When Christians are trained to “let the preacher do it,” they won’t sense a need to learn to connect with God on their own. When persecution tears church structure asunder, revival comes because Christians have to trust in the risen Jesus. If Christ-followers will meet to “let go & let God,” they will recover and rediscover the joy and power of the early Christians.

Christianity has trained people to rely on the outward support systems of religion rather than on the Spirit’s inner support. Christianity is supposed to be the spontaneous movement of the Holy Spirit, not a religious production. Instead of doing what you want to do for God, let Him do what He wants to do in and thru you.

When people are aware of the actual presence of the risen Jesus, they can’t focus on a program because they’re in awe of Him. Christians proclaim a risen Jesus, but do we listen to and obey Him before tradition, doctrine, preachers, programs, and churches? Instead of arguing with each other, why don’t we listen to Jesus?

A sunrise without a Sonrise in your heart, means a day trusting in “soular” power rather in Christ’s power. Christianity is a lifetime of ongoing transformation, not just a one-time conversion experience. If you’re not growing in relationship with Christ, you’re just going thru the motions of Christianity.

False prophets are usually much more popular than true prophets. I believe the Holy Spirit is asking: “Who will listen to My still small voice and let Me lead them from within?” Live in tow to Jesus, daily going with the flow of His inward tugging. When one door closes, open your heart to the risen Jesus. He’s the Door and is always open.

When pastors connect it’s called unity, but true unity is when members of various churches connect heart-to-heart in the Spirit. Go beyond sweet religious hugs & learn to courageously obey Jesus’ inner tugs! If you won’t let Jesus float your boat, your religion will just be going thru the motions of rote ritual. Instead of kicking against Jesus, let Him kick in and run your life.

Here is a much ignored Bible verse: “So then, no more boasting about human leaders.” The Bible says that Christians who identify themselves by a human leader are “worldly.” See 1 Corinthians chapter 3.

Denying Hell’s existence seems to be a hot topic, but Jesus died not so we can deny it, but so we can avoid it. Don’t hide behind the shadows in your heart. Instead, let the shadows lead you to God’s Light.

Christianity is pursuit of God, not arrival. If you think you’ve arrived, perhaps you haven’t gotten started. (Matthew 6:33.)

Jesus
wants in
your life.
He doesn’t
want sin
to rule within you.

If Jesus isn’t on your mind through out the week, perhaps you’ve buried Him way back in your heart. Let Him rise again! Some people resist Jesus by boxing against Him. Some just put Him in a box — “religious figure,” “myth,” “ticket to Heaven,” etc.

For a handbook about how to let God organize, search for: Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible–Ekklesia. Thank you.

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
