Do you ever get tired of going to church?
Do you ever get tired of going to church? Is it something you look forward to, or is it burdensome to you? Do you get bored with singing, taking the Lord's supper, giving, praying? Does it get to be monotonous for you?
How about reading your Bible? Do you get tired of reading the Bible? Do you grow weary from praying constantly for the sick? Do you get tired of being good to people, of being the nice guy all the time? In other words, do you get tired of serving God? Is it tempting to cast Christianity aside for maybe a day or two at least, and do whatever you feel like doing? If so, you wouldn't be the first one to have those kinds of thoughts.
Paul had to admonish the 1st Century church in Thessalonica:
But as for you, brethren, do not grow weary of doing good.
- II Thessalonians 3:13
It happens. We don't mean for it to, but sometimes we just grow weary of doing good. We get tired. We forget to keep up our spiritual strength, and before we know it, we find ourselves doing Christian things in Christian ways, but our hearts are really not into it.
It's like glancing down at your cell phone and noticing your battery is on 10%. You go into panic mode. It's time to find a charger. In the same way, we need our spiritual batteries recharged. We need to get plugged in. Hopefully, that happens for you today. Getting plugged into your church can charge you up.
Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we received mercy, we do not lose heart.
- II Corinthians 4:1
There's no sense in you running on empty all the time. Look around you. This place is pulsing with energy. Get connected. Immerse yourself in what's going on here and feel your energy start to rise. Before long, you will feel so spiritually energized, you'll be looking for somebody else to give a boost.
