Jesus Stays Boring

I often hear this sentiment:

“It is our differences that make us unique and special. Imagine how boring it would be if everyone were the same.”

According to this wisdom–change is exciting; stuff that stays the same is boring. Which leads me to Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”

Jesus stays the same and thus comes across as boring to many. The Church then has to be “culturally relevant,” which is just fancy wordage for “more exciting in more differenter ways.”

We’re embarrassed by our boring God. Perhaps our celebration of change and things being different has corrupted our notion of God.

If not, hey, just be glad that you’re more different than I am and how my stupidity adds to the excitement of your life. Amen.

One thought on “Jesus Stays Boring”

  1. >”We’re embarrassed by our boring God”

    Isaiah 53:
    1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?
    2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

    and yet He is….

    “…the desire of all nations…” Haggai 2:7

    There’s another contradiction for those FastCompany people to pin on their wall.
