Periodic Reminders

Half the Old Testament is the word Remember. No, that’s not true. It’s 48%. I just rounded up. As Israel forgot, so do we. Today’s insert is a simple reminder of some of the standards we work to maintain as we sing for the Lord. My prayer is that you […]

How Bored Do You Get?


The Preaching Rally theme this year is Timeless.

The concept behind Timeless is that every Christian will benefit when he learns that there is much more meaning to the time-tested and proven things in life than there is in the trendy, new and flashy things.

Timeless or trendy? Which do you prefer?

Most teens prefer trendy, or new things. One sure way to test your appetite for trendy is to ask yourself, “How bored do I get?”

You load a new app, use it a while, then it’s old. You search for a new one and maybe even buy it, but the thrill doesn’t last. You’re bored.

You get new clothes, wear them once, get complimented, wear them again, maybe get a couple more compliments, wear them again and they’re old. Then you’re bored with it. They’re not fresh any more. You need new.

How bored do you get?

You come to church and it’s the same thing as always. You sit through the same preacher and play the same games and go on the same activities. Remember when things were exciting to you? Are you bored now?

Devotions can get old, too. You wake up and feel as badly as you did yesterday—your eyes won’t stay open and you just want to go back to sleep. You can’t concentrate anyway… why read my Bible? BIBS was new and exciting at first… but you’ve done it a while and now it’s not new any more. What will it take for this to be exciting again? I need something fresh. I need something new. Have you ever thought that?

Timeless is all about fighting off that mentality. Being timeless means that you realize some things in life might seem boring, but if you’re really thinking about them right, they are the best things in life. Being timeless means that you don’t always have to have new things in order to be interested. Church doesn’t always have to be a new sermon series or a novel concept. Devotions don’t always have to be in a new format. Being timeless simply means that you are not giving in to the constant and never-ending craving for new. After all, you’ll never get enough, so why not just do what you know you should do and anchor yourself to God’s timelessness. It will last. I promise.
