When Jesus is in the present tense, there’s no need to be tense

When you begin to experience Jesus in the present tense, you won’t be so tense! To learn about Jesus is good, but it can’t compare to experiencing Him. Jesus is talking. His sheep hear His voice.

I believe in Jesus like I believe in gravity. Although I can’t see Him with my physical eyes, I continually feel His pull!

When worshipping Jesus captivates you, worship becomes 24/7/365! The kingdom of God comes when people gather to hear and do what Jesus says.

Anyone or anything that is between you and the risen Jesus, is out of place. When someone experiences the actual presence of Jesus, they are in awe, deeply moved, even stunned! We need Jesus, not religion.

The Pharisees focused on religious behaviors, but let their heart get hard. Jesus called them, “the blind leading the blind.” The witness of the Spirit — how we need to hear it! (See Romans 8:16.) Hearing a sermon is far different than hearing the living Jesus speak directly to your heart. Man-led religion can’t compare to a Spirit-led relationship with Jesus! A lifetime, Jesus trip is so much better than a religious script! (Search: The Joy Of Early Christianity book.)

I believe in 
The water parter,
The Red Sea,
The Jordan River.
When there's no way,
He's the way maker.

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
