"Yet somehow many Christians have come to believe that a person can be a “Christian” without being like Christ. A “follower” who doesnʼt follow. It doesnʼt make a lot of sense, if you think about it. Many people in the church have decided to take on the name of Christ and nothing else. This would be like Jesus walking up to those first disciples and saying, “Hey, would you guys mind identifying yourselves with me in some way? Donʼt worry, I donʼt actually care if you do anything I do or change your lifestyle at all. Iʼm just looking for people who are willing to call themselves Christians.” Seriously?

No one really believes that this is all it means to be a Christian. But then why do so many Christians live this way?  It appears that weʼve lost sight of what it means to be a follower of Jesus. The concept isnʼt difficult to understand, but it requires everything.”
