Do you know Christians who only joined the "reserve corps" and have no interest in active duty?
Many people have joined the church and see it as the "Christian Reserve Corps." They just want a reserved place in heaven, but they are not interested in active duty or service. Yet, the call to follow Christ is a call to active duty. The Christian is called to be on mission with Christ. Christianity is not a spectator sport. God intends for everyone to be an active member of the body of Christ.
As we help believers come to a first love for Christ, they will choose to obey Him and joyfully serve Him. On Monday, I will speak to the need to call the "Discipleship Reserve Corps" to active duty as well.
