Casual or Committed

When it comes around to faith in Christ, isn't this what it's all about? Do we have a casual faith--one that says our trust in Christ occupies a small part of our lives, or are we committed, dedicated followers of our Lord? We are called in Scripture the bride of Christ...let's stop dating and get married. Casual faith is no faith at all. Bonhoeffer said, "When Christ calls a man, he bids him come and die." Jesus wants our all; He wants us to give Him top priority, over all earthly things. Let's put to death self-interest, self-idolatry. Anything less means we've bought into the agenda of the world. Let's put Christ first!
