Think about it. For the great majority of evangelicals and the many tribes within our big tent, when a person enters into a relationship with Jesus (John 17:3), they’re told immediately to practice many of the following Spiritual Disciplines:
- Read your Bible everyday
- Memorize scripture
- Join a church
- Get in a small group or Sunday school class
- Serve in a church ministry
- And share the Gospel with your friends and invite them to a service
Derwin gets it. We get so focused on what we think people should be doing, but neglect to tell them why. Christianity then becomes ritualistic rather than about transformation.
