I had the privilege today to review a new Bible study series entitled SALT-Seven Areas of Life Trainings, A Comprehensive Discipleship Series. It’s a rather simple, straight forward, 28 lesson study that most anyone could work through in a day or two, with nothing more to distract her. The concepts are simple and supported with Scripture and applications to life are easy to draw.
It was so simple I had to ask myself, does real discipleship seem this easy to some people? It has not been easy in the least for me. I struggle regularly with ongoing refining in key areas of my life. Sometimes I get so annoyed with some of the cute acronyms and simplistic formulaic programs developed for people seeking to live more Christianly. It’s just not that easy.
Simple? Maybe. Easy? No. But I’ve not met many people who will grant that discipleship is even simple. It may actually be simple, though, when broken down to the lowest common denominators I’ve found so far- trust and obey.
Trust and obey, For there’s no other way.
To be happy in Jesus, than to trust and obey.
