Christians stay focused!

Anyone who is bored with Christianity is out of touch with the living, resurrected Jesus. When the living Jesus is bubbling up from within you, you will have joy, even if churches and bars are closed.

Christians, stay focused! Helping people respond positively to the risen Jesus is much more important than criticizing their politics.

Many Christians allow their attention to be distracted from the risen Jesus. I prefer to stay captivated by His glorious presence. I love to discover fresh, creative, and biblical approaches to a growing relationship with the living, resurrected Jesus Christ.

A daily relationship with the living Jesus is incredibly amazing. When the living Jesus takes over your life from the inside out, you’re too full of love to want to argue with people! When you daily experience Jesus you continually want to tell His story.

Everything on earth changes except the living Jesus. He’s the Rock — “the same yesterday, today, and forever.” If you daily follow the risen Jesus you’ll find yourself in amazing places, joyfully experiencing incredible situations.

Too many churches try to explain Jesus to the same people every week, instead of training them to maintain a daily relationship with Him. Rather than coaching people to daily follow the living Jesus and make disciples as they do, church makes them hear a weekly talk.

With bars and churches restricted in how they meet, try finding fulfillment biblically: “Christ in you, the hope of glory.” Church too often tries to distract people from the world, instead of demonstrating the presence of the risen Jesus.

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
