Second-hand Christianity often misses Christ-supremacy

Second-hand Christianity lacks the vitality of first-hand connection and direct interaction with the living Jesus. Second-hand thoughts about Jesus can’t compare to a first-hand relationship with Him!

Christ can do anything better than you (or me). Why not let Him? Biblical Christianity is about Christ’s supremacy. The living Jesus is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! The only supremacy in the body of Christ should be the supremacy of the living Jesus. We can’t follow Jesus if we don’t believe He is with us and can lead us.

Make more room for Jesus in your life. Remove anything that’s blocking Him. Christ calls His followers to more — more sensitivity to His voice, more passion for His presence, more obedience to His leading.

There’s more to Christianity than meets the natural eye — much that must be seen with the heart. Biblical Christianity is based on listening to the living Jesus & then following His inner instructions–“being led by the Spirit.”

When praying seizes your heart, you will begin to pray without ceasing. Here are 3 steps to biblical Christianity:
1) Meet up with Jesus.
2) Hang out with Jesus.
3) Follow and obey Jesus.

To some life’s
A meaningless story,
But Christ in you
Turns it into glory!

Learn the art
Of running God’s apps
In your heart.
It’s supernatural.

Alive!
Present!
Speaking!
Working!
Jesus!
Connect with Him!

Early Christianity never substituted attending church, for following and obeying the risen Jesus. I find God’s inner media that I receive on the device of my heart to be far more exciting and powerful than any other media! When the Bible is analyzed but not applied as inner media that motivates action, it’s real purpose is denied! “Be doers of the word. If you don’t read the Bible for yourself, you can’t be certain that you are experiencing biblical Christianity.

Joy is wholesome fun that doesn’t end when the party’s done. Search for: The Joy Of Early Christianity book.

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
