The internally empowering Jesus needs no middleman

When we cut out the middleman and let the living Jesus directly empower us from within, Christianity rises to new levels of glory. What people say and do, shows the world whether or not they are surrendered to the internally empowering Jesus.

People follow invisible things, thoughts and feelings. The internally empowering Jesus is also invisible. I seek to follow Him.

The most effective empowerment is both internal and supernatural. That’s what the risen Jesus wants to do for you. The best reforms are the ones that He wants to make inside of you.

When you’re discouraged let the internally empowering Jesus shift your heart into Spirit-drive. When I feel weak and powerless, I humbly ask God for help and the internally empowering Jesus rises up within me. He causes me to see the image of God in all people and gives me supernatural love for everybody.

The internally empowering Jesus is limited if you make Him your passenger. However, if you let Him in the driver’s seat, you’ll cruise to freedom! Like a hand puppet in a puppet show, let the internally empowering Jesus animate you by living in and thru you. (If you let the living Jesus fully control what you say and do, would you still be saying and doing what you are now?)

The internally empowering Jesus can give you the amazing ability to freely forgive and bless everybody who’s ever done you wrong. He can break the chains of sin-crusted cravings, habits, and addictions.

I discovered that I can’t obey God in my own power. I need the internally empowering Jesus to live in and thru me. Self-empowerment is a myth. Self-focus exhausts power. It doesn’t enhance it. Focus on a purpose beyond yourself is empowering.

To be internally empowered, let the risen Jesus live inside and flow thru you. The internally empowering Jesus is “the hope of glory”! He can set you free from bondage that has buffeted you for years. Surrender to Him and see!

The formalized Jesus can hide the living Jesus from our eyes, but we can look beyond an institution and see Him with our intuition. Formalized Christianity tends to make people passive, but the internally empowering Jesus stirs people into action.

Formalized Christianity seems to encourage spiritual distancing, instead of encouraging open hearts passionately surrendering to the risen Jesus. Pentecost disrupted formalism and thrust the first Christians into ongoing mystical experiences with the internally empowering Jesus.

The “mystery” of Early Christianity is the internally empowering Jesus: “Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.” 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
