Description

There is a great disconnection with God's people in church on the weekend and who we are the rest of the week. It is like we suffer from schizophrenia, we have multiple personalities. We are one person when we go to church, a different person at work, at home, at social settings, when driving, etcetera. The Apostle Paul was aware of this predicament in the church at Philippi, "Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling" (Philippians 2:12). Paul is saying we must be consistent, no matter where we are or who is present. God wants us to live a consistent life everyday of our lives. This book shows how we can accomplish this task on a daily basis. The author starts off by showing why the disconnections exist in our lives. He first deals with our human dilemmas, getting us to understand who we are, and some things we don't have to waste time asking God for. Then he addresses the ones who are responsible for the disconnections, dealing first with the individual and his contributions.Like taking responsibility for his actions, utilizing his gifts, not living by bread alone and how not to be covetous. Afterwards he moves to the part the church plays in the disconnection. How the Pastor, religion, traditions, politics, membership help to bring about and sustain the disconnection. The final section deals with how can we go about establishing the reconnection and maintaining it so that we can be who God wants us to be twenty four seven. Here he deals with developing long lasting relationships, becoming a disciple of Jesus, understanding and enjoying fellowship as we get involved in ministry.
