The church today has many more consumers than committed participants. Church is merely an event we attend or an organization we belong to. We don't understand that God has called His children into daily ministry.
We would be relieved if God placed our sanctification in the hands of trained and paid professionals. We would be happy to let pastors and elders and counselors do all the work. But that's simply not the biblical model.
As Paul David Tripp explains, God's plan can be summed up in a sentence: people in need of change helping people in need of change. He calls all His children to participate in ministry all the time.
Through faithful ministry of every part, the Body will grow to full maturity in Christ. Don't just sit on the sideline. Make ministry your life and life your ministry.
Become an effective tool of change in the lives of others.

Paul Tripp helps us discover where change is needed in our own lives and the lives of others. Following the example of Jesus, Tripp reveals how to get to know people, and how to lovingly speak truth to them. As inadequate as we are, God is eager to use us to help others change. The more you apply the biblical principles discussed in this book, the more readily you will fit into his mighty hand."
- Ken Sande, President, Peacemaker Ministries
"A wonderful reminder that everyone who belongs to Jesus can help others. God gave us to each other! This is a wise and helpful book that should change your life and that of the church. Read it! You'll be glad."
- Steve Brown, broadcaster, Key Life Radio
"Tripp is a careful and skillful physician of the heart. He unites a loving heart with a mind trained to the Scriptures. This book is a great companion for pastors and counselors. It will guide anyone who wants to give real help to others, the saving help that is found in Christ's redeeming work."
- Richard Phillips, Senior Pastor, Second Presbyterian Church, Greenville, S.C.
