~ Greear

Do you often feel dry spiritually? Or just cold? Like something is missing?

Many people have been Christians since they were little. They are well versed in the facts and stories of the Bible, but they are no longer captivated by them.

Others are just bored with Jesus. There’s no passion in their lives. They go through the motions, but they don’t want to read the Bible and pray on their own. They don’t really feel anything when they worship.

Why have we gotten bored with Jesus? Why do we feel cold toward the gospel? And how do we fix it?
