“Selfianity” promotes self-focus

Christianity calls us to self-denial. Selfianity promotes self-focus. Some people want Christianity when it’s convenient and an escape clause when it’s not.

When Christ is only a theory, we’ll grow spiritually weary. When He’s living within, we’ll overcome our sin.

Can you hear God now? “Whoever belongs to God hears what God says.” –Jesus (Accept no substitutes for the living, resurrected Jesus Christ.)

Church should be where the human love of hierarchical power is replaced with the power of God’s supernatural love. Early Christianity wasn’t a professional career for a few believers, but a calling for them all to obey the living Jesus. The most effective Christian leaders train people to surrender to, to follow, and to obey the resurrected Jesus Christ.

Jesus left His tomb empty. Now let him fill you (not just your preacher) with His living presence. The greater your awareness of Christ living in you, the greater your peace and joy. Search for: The Joy Of Early Christianity.

Silence your conscience by turning away from wrong and doing right, not by medicating it or denying it. The Bible calls that repentance.

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
