Being a Christian Boring?Who ever thought being a Christian is boring never really was one. You are being constantly challenged to grow. To grow you have to trust. Trust God. Trust our Lord Jesus. Allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. You need to submit. Submit to God. That's what most people don't want to do. Original sin; like Satan, wants to be God. To have your will done instead of God's Will. That the whole thing. "Thy will be done, Thy kingdom come. On earth as it is in heaven."Being a Christian Boring?3 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
People think that married Christians are boring? You know your relationship is for eternity. Not that you still will be husband and wife:
For when the dead rise, they will neither marry nor be given in marriage. In this respect they will be like the angels in heaven.
: But that you will know and be with Christ together for eternity. You have made the decision to love for life; love is a determination of the will- when you trust this in a marriage you know

For sin pays its wagedeath;
but God's free gift is eternal life in union
with Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 6: 23
Have you ever floated on the currents of a river; either in a boat or on a tube or just your body ~ floating? To relinquish control and let the current move you all on its' own power with no effort on your part; is that what surrender means?
What of surrender to God ~ to see where His Spirit leads you and to do the Will of our Heavenly Father ~ to just let go! What stops us from trusting? What sins get in the way of letting God's Will and His plans for us over take our plans and our will?
1 To have faith is to be sure of the things we hope for, to be certain of the things we cannot see.
That's faith; letting go of our will, our life and clinging to the Lord. Not to give up our free will but to choose to do God's Will instead of our own. You do this by trusting Christ and following His faith in God.
