Most of us become believers knowing that it means being a disciple of Christ. Most of us know being a disciple of Christ is costly. We “count the costs” and live strong, but do we lose track of what our reward truly is?
Is there really a shortcut in the Christian life? We can truly desire holiness, righteousness, and godliness (and those are good things), but if we try to skip the years of practice and instruction that it can take to get there, and if we try to appear more mature than we are, we are hypocrites.
When it comes to sharing our faith, some of us should reconsider our approach a bit. The older I get the more I can look back on times which are quite embarrassing despite how noble my intentions were, and yet, I realize how much of it I caused myself in pride and foolishness.
