A Fatal Dissconnect – Final

RobDevotions

Alright, let’s wrap this thing up.

For those of you just catching up, go here for part one and here for part two before you read on.

All caught up?

Good.

So people sometimes miss it.

So things don’t always gel.

There’s not always a “connect.”

Big deal.

Well, actually it is a huge deal. As the series title indicates, it’s a fatal disconnect, not merely a ‘critical’ disconnect, or a ‘serious’ disconnect. This connection is either made, or you don’t make it.

Period.

Have you figured out what the connection is yet?

Well, sense this is the final post I’ll cut to the chase. The connection that must be made is with me and my sin. Me and my ‘stuff…’

‘baggage,’

‘crapola,’

jealousy, anger, hatred, gossip, envy, slander, laziness, lying, plotting, hurting…

Pretty long list really, but I’m sure everyone can find themselves in there somewhere. If you can’t—you’re fatally disconnected. The following types are in the most danger of that ‘disconnect becoming spiritually fatal…

  • blame gamers
  • perfect people
  • victims
  • The entitlement crowd
  • The ‘Not Fair’ crowd
  • Loners

In short, anyone and everyone who has become adept at explaining away any connection between themselves and the junk in their lives.

You don’t have to be responsible for all of it.

But you have to be responsible for some of it.

Otherwise there is a fatal disconnect. You won’t be able to repent. Therefore you won’t turn form your sin. In fact, you probably won’t even use the word, ‘sin.’ And, worst of all…

You will never connect with God’s saving grace in Christ Jesus.

That’s fatal.
