When the level of intelligence is beyond the level of the teaching being received, boredom leads to behavioral issues in the students. Instead of raising the level of teaching, we label the intelligent in order to dumb them down. When the Bible tells us we have been given power to do exploits, but there is a lack of power in the room we call church on Sunday morning or Wednesday night, people get bored and begin to exhibit behaviors not fitting for believers. Instead of the leaders being challenged to go deeper with God, we critize the congregation for their behaviors.
In Luke 9:1-2 it says, “And He called the twelve together, and gave them power and authority over all the demons and to heal diseases. And He sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to perform healing.” Jesus started by calling people together, we as the church gather well. Jesus them gave them power and authority, the church in some places does this well, but most places prefer powerless people for they are easier to lead. But what very few ministries do well is send people out to proclaim the kingdom and perform miracles. They tell you can do it, but that is different than sending them out, giving them a place to go do it.
The kingdom age in which we are in is going to gather people together, give them power and authority, welcome people of power and authority, celebrate people of power and authority and it is going to know of places to send people out to, in order to preach the kingdom of God and perform miracles. Those places will include businesses, courtrooms, stadiums, conferences, grocery stores, and houses. The church building is not the only place to be sent out to. Then when they come back with a report of what happened, the whole church will rejoice in what God is doing in our city, in our community, in our family. There is no time to be bored in the kingdom of God, for there is room for everyone to operate by design.
