Discipleship is necessary because, as Paul reminds us, we LEARN Christ. We aren’t “zapped” with Christ and holiness at the altar. We are TAUGHT.
Eph. 4:20-24 — There is a way of life to be LEARNED. There is a way to treat our former lives and our new lives in Christ… and that way should be TAUGHT.
We cannot leave spiritual growth to chance. We have to get involved. Our own lives must be advancing. And we challenge others to advance as well. Our lives need to be a living invitation. May people see our lives and think, “If THAT what following Christ is about, sign me up!”
