Among the points McGee covers in the book include:
1. The abundant life does not mean a problem-free life.
2. Our worth is based on what God says about us and what Jesus Christ did for us, not our performance or the opinions of others.
3. God wants to be the Lord of our lives and He is unwilling to share that Lordship with anyone or anything.
4. Express your hurt and anger to God first before going to other people (the Psalmnist often did this).
5. The worries of this world are the main culprit in hindering our spiritual growth.
6. Christ, not self-improvement, is to be the goal.
7. God is not obligated to bless us, but does what is best for His honor and our growth.
8. 5 ways to use God's affirmation as an offensive weapon for changing our lives.
Yes, despite the pain and pressure in our lives, we can and do have a hope in Jesus Christ!
Read the book and be encouraged to focus on Jesus instead of yourself or others, to get your self-worth and significance.
During the process of seeing non-Christian counselors and psychiatrists to jump through the hoops for my insurance, I learned of cognitive therapy. I tried it, but it was very self-focused and all about self-love. The Search For Significance is the Christian version of cognitive therapy, in my opinion. It works because it teaches us how to break the patterns of false thoughts and replace them with true thoughts that we can actually believe in and that don't fail. I was able to reduce my dosage of medication significantly after going through this book and have been stable at the lower dosage for a year now. I am feeling strong enough to try a small decrease again in the near future and hopefully again & again after that.
It is very hard work and you must be dedicated and focused to learn the principles and tools to change your patterns of thought. It is so challenging that when I tried to do it before going on the meds, I couldn't handle it or absorb it. Once you get the tools down, then it is hard work to keep practicing them and keep from slipping into the old patterns. This is a book that you will pick up over and over again.
I agree with the other reviewer that chapter 3 on salvation was a bit slow. But I feel that it is very needed and purposeful. After all, how could this book be recommended to non-Christians without that chapter since the whole premise of the book is realizing your true identity in Christ?
