“Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.”
Do you consider yourself a disciple of Jesus Christ? Every Christian should be able to say that he or she is a disciple—not a perfect disciple, but a growing disciple of Jesus. Every believer should be one. Discipleship is living the Christian life as Jesus taught it and as the early church understood it. It’s real Christianity.
I think some are reluctant to live that way because it seems, well, radical. Discipleship is the road less taken, and some don’t want hardship. They don’t want a challenge. They don’t want difficulty, so they will take the path of least resistance instead of the discipleship road.
