Lazy Christians – why don’t they go deep enough?
A fun look at lazy Christians who could do better.
There is an amazing tendency for Christians to just nurse some pastor, or website, for milk once a week, and never go for the meat of the Word, which actually requires some independent study, and thought on their part.
Why are people so lazy, and not want to think?
The brain is there for our use, but most people have it turned off. They prefer to be sponges, and just take in what others work for.
Going deep with God requires time. It requires one on one time with God, being alone.
People do not like to be alone, because they actually think they are alone when no one is around!! (Guess who is also there?)
Maybe they are hiding from God.
God is there, waiting for them to talk to Him, ready to inspire them and have a real father to child conversation.
Maybe it is because we would rather play with our toys – TV, computer, the family dog, cell phone, or too busy overeating our favorite foods.
Maybe we are just babies, and we, being too much in the flesh, just “do not feel like it.”
Cats have nine lives. We only have one. We should spend our time doing times worthwhile, and go deep, and find exciting things about God. The world is a wonderful mystery, with secret facts about God.
All we have to do is start sticking our nose into things more and find the pleasant surprises that God has left for us to find.
We, as believers, must allow the Holy Spirit to energize us and help us leap into the deep. The exercise will make us free in mind, no longer bound by boring, dreary concepts, because the revelation will be the refreshing we need to leap into each day of life.
After all, the brain is a muscle, and like any muscle, it will go weak if not exercised.
So, if we do not use our brains, we might end up like this guy.
