Being a disciple of Christ is not the process of adding one more item to a well-ordered life. It’s a process that re-orders everything in our lives. Discipleship is more than being saved. It’s also being transformed: from sin to holiness, from darkness to light, from death to life, from the realm of sin to the Kingdom of God. Transformation is evidence of salvation. If we’re not in the process of becoming more and more like Christ, then we’re fooling ourselves if we think we really belong to him.
