When I’m bored with Jesus,
I’m a boring Christian, awed by Payton Manning, awed by human somebodiness, awed by the excellence of others — and my own, outside and inside the Church, and there is no contagious Jesus in me. ShepherdDave. WorldlyDave. BoringDave.
But when the Spirit freshly convicts me of the sin of worldliness/pride/independence, I’m only awed by Jesus, and I’m undone, contrite, humble, an unconditional lover of others, myself, Jesus, and His genius plan for all our lives. And I’m bored by Payton Manning, Billy Graham, JFK, Reagan, and other human somebodies, human excellence, and bored by my own excellence.
