Human nature or Holy Spirit — the choice is ours

Christ offers an alternative to our human nature — to live His life in and thru us. Thus we can live by the flesh or by the Spirit. Christians are called to overcome their sin, not to settle in with their sin. If you refuse to refute, renounce, and reject negative and/or sinful thoughts, they will continue to torment you.

Misbehaving is bad for mental health, opening the door to guilt and its repercussions. However, Jesus is my Uber. Hanging out with Him drives me to sanity, peace, and joy — where He wants me to be.

Jesus said, ““Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!” Change your perspective and begin to see from God’s point of view!

Jesus said, “The truth will set you free.” But lies will paralyze, imprison, and torment you. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” “The way” means that we need to listen to Him and do what He says. “The truth” means that we should avoid being dishonest because dishonesty denies the truth. “The life” means that you need to let Jesus live in and animate you.

A completely clear conscience can’t be created by good works or religion. It is the result of receiving Christ’s forgiveness.

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
