Normal Christianity = Discipleship


Written by BGU

There are two kinds of people in the world: people moving closer to Jesus (disciples) and people moving farther away from Jesus (the lost). Discipleship is not a right of passage into the Christian life, it is the Christian life, the normal Christian life.

“If you are not continuing in your discipleship, then you are not a disciple of Christ.” Dr. Hartford was drawing a hard line in the sand while making this statement in class, dashing to pieces the perspective I’ve had for so long that there are three different kinds of people: the lost, the normal Christians, and those serious about discipleship. What Hartford was saying is that there are actually only two different kinds of people: the disciples of Christ and the lost.

Lecrae said it well in a song: “Paul said if Christ ain’t resurrected we wasted our lives, would that imply that our lives drift around Jesus being alive,”. He was referencing 1 Corinthians 15:12-19.

You’re either going hard or growing cold. After all, there is no half-way point in pinning yourself to a cross. You are either drawing closer to Christ or drifting farther away. There is no in between.
