The Search For Significance Essay

1243 words - 5 pages

Book Written by Robert S. McGee

This report is based upon the book The Search for Significance, written by Robert S. McGee. The book publisher is Thomas Nelson, Inc., it’s the 2nd. Edition and was copyrighted in 1990. There are 339 pages and includes The Search for Significance Workbook. This is my first reading of this book and it was chosen because my church started a women’s small group in September that was going to be discussing the Workbook. I had wanted to join the group, and wasn’t able to, thus seeing this book on the required listing for this class thought I would get insight from the book and join the group next year. I also liked the cover which has a man with his hands ...view middle of the document...

God’s truth is Justification – I am completely forgiven and fully pleasing to God. I no longer have to fear failure.
False Belief is Approval Addict – I must be approved by certain others to feel good about myself.
God’s truth is Reconciliation – I am totally accepted by God. I no longer have to fear rejection.
False Belief is The Blame Game – Those who fail (including myself) are unworthy of love and deserve to be punished.
God’s truth is Propitiation – I am deeply loved by God. I no longer have to fear punishment or punish others.
False Belief is Shame – I am what I am. I cannot change. I am hopeless.
God’s truth is Regeneration – I have been made brand-new, complete in Christ. I no longer need to experience the pain of shame.

I think this book equips anyone that reads it with the necessary knowledge and tools needed to conquer the False Beliefs that are effecting their life.

I had not heard of the term Propitiation before. The author references that, “Providing His only begotten Son as the propitiation for our sin was the greatest possible demonstration of God’s love for man. (88) He also talked about how man has wronged God from Adam and Eve to now and the cruelty man done to Jesus. How man has turned his back on God and God still loves us. His love is unconditional.

Another very important principle discussed in the book is the Agent of Change. The Agent of Change is the Holy Spirit and when the search for significance journey is undertaken we need him to guide use.

I found all of the information in the book to be very enlightening. Not that I was born yesterday, just that I had not thought of the problems as being false beliefs. I read the book for the purpose of completing this book report, and to really grasp the principles I plan to re-read the book. Re-reading this book will greatly help me to be a better Christian and live the way that God wants me to live, a life of self worth.
I also liked the scriptural reference throughout the book. When scriptures are provided in a book such as this a Christian is more likely to apply to their life when they see it aligns with the word of God.

The most impactful of the false beliefs on my life has been The Performance Trap. There was a list of effects of this trap that I can relate to, such as, perfectionism to the point of compulsiveness, avoiding risks, anxiety and low motivation. I am glad I now have knowledge of the effects of this false belief,...
