The Slumber of Christianity Awakening a Passion for Heaven on Earth Û As believers our walk with God is motivated of Christianity Epub #223 by hope not the bland vague notion most people have but the expectation of an exotic pleasurable inheritance that guides us and fires our passionor at least shouldTed Dekker has written an expose on the death of pleasure within the Church Because many of us have set aside. I'm not sure I've read another book that stirred my passion and longing for Heaven as much as this one Well maybe Heaven by Randy Alcorn but for totally different reasons and this book was much shorter and easier to readThis book took a perspective shift that was sparked within me after my own struggles with chronic illness and the sudden recent death of my father not even yet 60 and fanned it into a full blown inferno Simply put we as Christians are living for the wrong things All of the glory and bliss that awaits us in Heaven with Christ should be our goal our aim our muse our motivator—for everything that we do Every other earthly goal pales in comparison to the inheritance we have in Christ for which we should strive and will ultimately fail to satisfy despite the enemy's insistence to the contraryDekker helped me rightfully realign my passion toward Eternity and in so doing explained how this proper perspective liberates me to rightfully enjoy the pleasures of this life as a foretaste of the incomparable riches awaiting me in the nextWhen actually grasped this truth really does change everything For instance1 I can see for the first time how a person would willingly give up their life for Christ2 I can honestly rejoice in painsuffering as a tool not designed by but used by God for my good3 The grief in the wake of my father's death is not eliminated but significantly altered and lessened4 The self imposed and world imposed significance placed on earthly things achievements accomplishments accolades is gone and I am free to live for God alone5 Paul's words that is would be far better to die so as to be with Christ Philippines 123 actually honestly resonate with my heart6 I'm actually looking forward to dying and going to Heaven No seriouslyThere's but I'll stopThe reason I didn't give the 5th star is because I feel there is one piece of the puzzle that Dekker left out possibly intentionally for the sake of length and that is to go into some of the specifics about Heaven that we actually do know through Scripture When studied the picture of Heaven that the Bible paints for us albeit limited is intoxicatingly alluring and enough motivation on it's own to spark my longing and begin to wake me up from the slumber that Dekker set out to remedy He does encourage the reader to examine the Bible for himherself and to spend time imagining and meditating on Heaven but I feel that even a brief summary of some of the amazing joy and pleasure that awaits the believer in Heaven would complete the picture excellentlyIf by chance this book has sparked your interest in Heaven and you would like a complete look at what the Bible does reveal to us about what Heaven will be like I highly recommend reading Heaven by Randy Alcorn who wrote the forward to this book The things Alcorn points out in his book absolutely blew me away and caused a yearning in me to be with Jesus in Heaven now These two books together make a wonderful setPS— As a side note I'm generally not interested in reading fiction Being primarily a fiction author himself Dekker takes some time in this book to defend his personal love and support of fiction Surprisingly I think he made some good points and I'm considering delving into some fiction now as a result FREE READ æ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ð Ted Dekker

Ted Dekker ð 7 READ Hope and the inspired The Slumber ePUB #10003 imagination that drives it Dekker says we have been lulled into a slumber of boredom even despondency Our faith wanes the joy at having been liberated fades and we feel powerless The Slumber of Christianity explores what robs us of happiness and how we can rediscover it and live lives that rekind. Ted Dekker Spends the majority of his time writing Christian Fiction He does that with great precision as he weaves faith into a story of myth and revealing the redemption of Christ He did this very well in theCircle Trilogy that became a uadolgy if that is a word lolHowever the slumber of Christianity is his only non fiction book that I am aware of and it is about breathing life back into lifless Christianity Dekker in this book wants to awaken sleeping christians He wants to remind us that there is life in death I am remided in this book that I live so that I might die Are we living in anxious hope of death or do we enjoy getting what we can in this life and living short sighted A uote I like Christians If our hope is for only the things our faith can give us in this life we are to be pitied than all men christians have we fallen in such a deep slumber coveting the things of this world that we have lost sight of true hope Pauls himself longed for the ship of death that would be his vehicle home Even in life his hope was chrsit He said for me to live is christ and to die is gain He was awake alive and vibrant in hope Life in Christ for me is life Death in Christ for me is life He was saying in life and in death it is a win win situation because he was not in spiritual slumber Ted says Awakening to a passion for heaven on earth begins by exposing the slumber that has stolen that passion and understanding the critical role the emotion of hope plays in any passion for the bliss to come Set your mind will and emotion on a course toward heaven and live in light of eternity Fascinate your mind with Christ and fan into flames a vision of the afterlife In my opinion the only thing that seperates Christians today from the apostlesdisciples of jesus is the anticipation of the hope to come We say lord I am ready Just let me get married first or see my kids grow up or have a nice job or the list goes on Jesus says die and deny then you can follow me This is hope
