If these are the true means of having an exciting life, then Jesus missed the mark because that is so opposite of anything He taught while on earth or found in His book, the Bible.
For the Christian, Jesus promises an abundant life. Not just when we get to heaven, but also here on this earth. Jesus does not think like we humans do so His definition of an exciting life is so radical.
Jesus' definition of an exciting life is
Service to others is what life is about. Jesus came as a human to our world to serve. Read about it in the gospels for yourself. For Christians, Jesus is our example and He led a selfless life. While on earth He spent His days healing people of physical and emotional illness. He did whatever He could to lessen suffering and when He went through villages there wasn't a sick person left. When He wasn't healing He spent His time teaching the common people the principles of His kingdom. Because of the pompous religious leaders, the people did not understand the scriptures and were taught church traditions instead of simple Bible truth. Jesus taught the people that life is about giving your heart to God, repenting of sin, making Him Lord of your life, and living to bless others, instead of engaging in religious ceremonies as a means to get to heaven which the religious rulers were teaching.
Is it that simple?
Yes, true Bible religion is not complicated. We are born to serve and the sooner you find your service niche the sooner you will "get a life".
What would it be like if everyone in the world led an unselfish other-centered life? How happy people would be! It could eliminate suicide. Everyone would have a reason for living and would feel useful regardless of whether they were dirt poor or bedbound.
