Disconnected Faith

Have you felt a little disconnected lately? Like prayer is more difficult. Relationships in your church require more work and discipline, with very little joy? Faith in general feels like a burden and not a joyful privilege?

You may feel that way because you are in fact disconnected in someway. A couple of things to consider:

  • Disconnected from the Father -Do you regularly commune with [relate to] God the Father in prayer and through the Scriptures? If not, why? What is beneath the surface? Is it lack of desire? What’s beneath that? Is it a lack of time? What is taking the place of  being with the Father?
  • Disconnected from the body “other followers of Jesus”- Do you have regular community with other believers? Are you living life in isolation? How long has it been since you opened your home to another person just to chop it up[fellowship] about God, life, frailty and future?
  • Disconnected from mission -One question…do you live your life oriented around the Gospel and it’s implications? Are you living on mission, not because you have to, but because it is Gospel driven life?
  • Disconnected from the global reality of Christianity -Everyday thousands of people are harassed, persecuted, tortured, and even killed for their faith in Jesus. It can be very easy in our culture of American easy-believe-ism and Therapeutic Moralistic Deism to lose sight of the fact that faith costs…and for some that cost is great. Thinking about, praying for, and engaging with the suffering of the global church will help to stoke the dying embers of a faith formally on fire.
  • Disconnected from the Truth -The first century church was powerful, passionate, and full of life…why? Because they lived with the immediate knowledge that they’d killed Jesus, the Saviour of the world. Are you disconnected from the Truth of the Gospel? If you are a follower of Jesus, have you forgotten that you killed Jesus….I killed Jesus. Being connected to this Truth, this reality spurns on a passionate and radical faith.

Remember the Gospel, reconnect, and live dangerously for Jesus!

  1. Your blog reminded me of the verse below.

    Colossians 2:18 NIV Do not let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you for the prize. Such a person goes into great detail about what he has seen, and his unspiritual mind puffs him up with idle notions. 19 He has lost connection with the Head, from whom the whole body, supported and held together by its ligaments and sinews, grows as God causes it to grow.

    Continual connection with God is most important!
