IF YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS FROM GETTING BORING YOU MUST KEEP YOU HEART AND YOUR EYES FIXED ON JESUS.
One thing I ask from the Lord,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
and to seek him in his temple. --Psalm 27:4
Turn my eyes away from worthless things;
preserve my life according to your word. --Psalm 119:37
IF WE WANT OUR FAITH TO REMAIN FRESH:
1. It is about relationship, not religion.
Religion is "doing things." Jesus loves you; His gift to you is free!
2. It is about growing, not arrival.
Jesus loves us, growing is key. See others through the eyes of grace as Jesus sees us.
None of us have arrived; we are all in this journey together.
3. It is about commission, not consumption.
We are called, equipped, and empowered to participate in the mission, just as the disciples were.
A STRONG FAITH IS A FAITH THAT IS SHARED.
A sure way to get bored with Jesus: try to hoard Him to yourself.
When is the last time you shared your faith?
Jesus plus nothing!
It is Jesus and only Jesus who can satisfy.
