Christianity should never be without awe!

Christianity need never be without awe, miracles, wonders, spiritual gifts, and other direct interactions with the living Jesus. I don’t know how anybody can experience Jesus daily and not be continually thrilled about Him.

The Holy Spirit is the world’s best leader. He can do incredible things in and thru you, if you will listen to and obey Him. If you ignore the Holy Spirit, you quench Him and keep Him from doing all He wants to do. “Quench not the Spirit.”

“Christ in you,” (listen to Him with your inner ear and do what He tells you) “the hope of glory.” When the body of Christ gathers to let everyone listen to and obey the living Jesus, His direct leadership will be noticed by all.

Religion seldom lets Christ-followers obey Colossians 3:16, “Teach and admonish one another,” but social media does! When Jesus’ inner rivers of living water are allowed to freely flow, they will continually purify your mind and heart.

Many people promote ministries named after themselves, but the most important ministry is the Holy Spirit’s and He exalts Jesus. The early Christians preached Jesus “everywhere,” not just in special buildings.

Like Uber, God wants to give you a lift, (but to where He wants to go). The whole truth is: God loves you, but your sin and self-destruction break His heart. Airlines are great preachers. They’re always reminding us to think about our “final destination.”

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
