Honeysett: Why Do People Not Fully Commit to Local Church life?

Marcus writes:
During the week I had an alarming number of questions that went like this: "there is lots of joy in God in Philippians and none in my life. Does that mean something is wrong?" Yes it does! In each case I tried to find out what it was. I asked everyone who commented the following questions and received the corresponding answers. I want to start with four foundational questions:

* Do people know God?
# What kind of church do you attend?
# Why do you read the Bible?
# Do you ever take time in your schedule to simply adore God and his Christ?
# How would you describe your worship life?
* Do they grasp that the gospel is all of grace?
* Do they know what the Church is?
* Are they growing as disciples or have they somehow stalled?
