Don’t settle for another Jesus than the living, resurrected One

The Bible talks about “a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached.” Refuse to settle for less than the living, resurrected Jesus!

If your lifestyle doesn’t follow suit with the Holy Spirit something has gone awry. Spirit-prompted Christians consistently manifest these characteristics: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

When Christians won’t express disagreement, with kindness, peace, love, and patience, we’re refusing to manifesting the fruit of the Spirit. When the body of Christ isn’t producing people who overflow with the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22), things are out of whack.

There’s a big difference between catching a wave and hearing a talk about waves. The same with God’s Spirit.

Let the living Jesus
Take over your heart
And heal what’s broken apart.

Allow nothing ungodly to stay in your heart.

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
