The desire for fantasy and unreality is an obvious attempt to either produce something within that is not so boring or perhaps it is a mask to help hide the interior self we do not like. It might be an attempt to deal with the ‘loving your enemy’ issue not knowing it is our boring self that is the adversary.
The new birth and new life in Christ gives us a new start, a new self and keeps us from getting so tired of our own company and ourselves. Nothing is as boring as a person who has experienced only a natural birth without having ‘been born from above.’ Only being manmade is boring.
Paul, an apostle, wrote, “But you did not learn Christ in this way, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus, that, in reference to your former way of life, you are to rid yourselves of the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, and that you are to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.” (Ephesians 4:20-24)
When we say ‘we are bored’ we are really just saying how bored we are inside our own head with our head. And that can be very boring. If all we have is our self… yikes! That’s boring.
“I assure you, no one can enter the Kingdom of God without being born of water and the Spirit. Humans can reproduce only human life, but the Holy Spirit gives birth to spiritual life. So don’t be surprised when I say, ‘You must be born again.’” Jesus
