“I’m so bored”. I see this phrase all over the internets. Now that we can broadcast our current status to the world, more and more of us are admitting that – despite fancy technology and new TV shows – we’re still quite bored.
Studies show that the glow of our computer & television screens are tripping up our internal clocks. I think they also play a part in bringing our self-motivated, focused sense of purpose to a halt and plunging us into a pond of shear boredom. Our videogames and smartphones can give us a false sense of purpose and a real sense of pointlessness.
That’s not healthy, especially for our spiritual lives.
Therefore He says: “Awake, you who sleep…And Christ will give you light.” (Ephesians 5:14)
If you want to serve the Lord, there’s plenty of work to do. But we gotta wake up first. We gotta wake up from the nonplused stupor in our high-speed, heading-nowhere lifestyles. Wake up to the shortness of life. Wake up to the reality of lost souls. Wake up to a God Who will give you work if you make yourself available.
