You can’t (or at least shouldn’t) legislate immorality

When people try to impose their immorality on you, kindly hold fast to what you know is morally right. You can’t (or at least shouldn’t) legislate immorality.

Coercion and Christ’s love contradict. Coercion can compel outward compliance, but Christ’s love can change people from the inside out. Let the living Jesus be your inner plumber, unclog your heart, and release the Holy Spirit to freely flow from within you.

Christians should never ignore the risen Jesus. We should always pay close attention to Him.

Perhaps time and energy put into daily following and obeying the risen Jesus would be more effective than promoting politics. Indeed, if we would follow the living Jesus with as much passion as people are following political leaders, we’d change the world.

May you let Christ’s inner light shine
In your heart and mind,
In all the places
Darkness tries to hide.

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
