So Dan Wilt’s second Step to Awesome is…
2: AWESOME DISCIPLES
“Awesome musicians have actually decided to follow Jesus in their private AND public life.”
That’s pretty much self-explanatory. Yet how many times do we see people who believe that their business and involvement in a church makes them a believer? I am of the opinion that there will be many sold-out church volunteers who are very surprised to hear Jesus say, “apart from me; I never knew you.”
Reflect on your own life – if someone asked you to describe your spiritual life, would you be able to talk about anything other than your volunteerism? If you were to articulate your spiritual convictions, would you include anything more than a set of rules you follow in order to be a good person?
People, we are a part of Christ’s Church (capital C) because of His call on our lives. Remember Ephesians 2:8 – “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God…”
My point here is simply this: let’s be sure we are serving Christ and His Church out of our thankfulness and devotion to Him; NOT so that He will call us His own.
