Are You A Bored Church Member?
You forget your Bible.
You are always excusing your apathy, lateness or lack of participation in church to yourself.
You attend church at least two times out of the month because you are so busy on weekends or you just can't get up for whatever reason on Sunday mornings.
You want to serve somewhere but you don't feel equipped. You think other people are much more qualified.
You sing some of the worship songs, but not really.
You don't feel connected to others in your small group and think, "I wonder if I should leave and find another small group?" Truth is, have you even reached out to the people in your small group by greeting them or calling them?
Your mind wanders during the pastor's sermon and you think, "what am I going to do this afternoon? Where should we go for lunch?"
Church seems more of a chore or "to do list" than a joy and passion.
If this is you, you're a bored church member. Don't fret about it. Don't condemn yourself. Do something different. Commit to the LORD and not to people. Decide to get involved in serving others than waiting for others to serve you. This is the greatest way to ignite the passion of purpose in a believers heart away from boredom and apathy.
Six Ways to Move From Boredom To Purpose
Here's the vital truth.
Your church needs YOU. It really does. They need help-always. They need people who are open to welcoming others and loving on them.
Here's what Paul said, "...we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is EQUIPPED, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love" Ephesians 4:16.
Are you growing up in every way into Christ who is the head of the church?
God equips you. To believe otherwise is a lie.
Look what happens when everything in the body is working properly? (Ephesians 4:16)
The BODY GROWS!!!!
You have a very important part in building up the body of Christ.
The greatest passion you can ever know is the passion of serving God's people.
But sadly, many people miss it because they are so covered up by apathy, lies and boredom.
Dear sister, don't miss out on the greatest adventure you could ever imagine with God.
He has a purpose for you in serving your church.
Ask Him today what it is and just start somewhere.
People get bored. People get tired. People get discouraged. But don't let these excuses keep you from growing your relationship with the LORD and helping build up HIS Kingdom for eternity.
