How To Not Be Bored At Church
I always respond, “To never be bored.”
You may think I’m crazy, or even slightly ignorant. I mean, what about the thousands of self help books and speakers that tell us to make goals and plan for the future? Or to put your goals in writing, take steps towards them…etc? I agree that those are all important, but honestly, that all just sounds a bit boring to me.
I’m kidding…kind of. In all actualness, planning and setting goals ARE really important, but they all fall under my big umbrella of “Don’t be bored” as long as you are planning for things you want and love. Hang with me, I have a point to this.
No matter what I am doing, or where I am at, I never want to be bored. What I mean is that I always want to be intrigued, having fun, working towards a larger purpose. Now I completely understand that there are times where we have to do paperwork, taxes, go to grandmas birthday party…etc. But work with me here. I don’t want to be bored with my life!
I want to do what I love, with people I love, and I don’t plan on letting anyone tell me I can’t.
Now, here is where I get spiritual. Because after all, I love Jesus and everything in my life revolves around him. I believe that we as Christians, and us as a church, should take on a similar mentality.
Too many churches are boring! Show me where in the Bible does it say that Jesus entered somewhere and the place got boring? Nowhere! Wherever Jesus was, things got crazy!
People were healed, the dead were raised, 2 loaves of bread and 2 fish were turned into the largest buffet in history! Where Jesus is, there is potential for miracles!
I want to encourage and excite you today! If your church is boring and “religious,” bring Jesus back! There is so much more to this life of Christianity than suits and ties, monotonous services and songs, and calling each other brother and sister! If Jesus is a part of your service, it will never be boring!
Call me crazy, but I’m right on track with my life goal when I walk with Jesus. I never know where he’s going to take me, what visions and guidance he’s going to give, or what he’s going to ask me to do!
Agree or disagree, I’d love to hear what you think below in the comments!
