The conditions in which you live and worship as Christian believers are not those of Sinai but those of heaven.  (Ellingworth, P. 1993)

Very few people have a conscious plan for developing their spiritual lives.  Most Christians are not intentional, but rather functional, like cars on cruise-control.  Our crammed schedules, endless to-do lists, demanding jobs and families, constant noise, information bombardment, and anxieties keep us speeding up, not slowing down.  We have routines to manage other parts of our lives.  For example, each morning we may get up, feed the cat, then make coffee, exercise, get dressed for work, and eat breakfast. (Scazzero, 2006)

Jesus had no time for superficial professions of faith. How important is it for us to understand the warning of Jesus, for often we are so eager to increase our memberships that we do everything in our power to make a commitment to Christianity as painless as possible.  We become peddlers of cheap grace, obscuring and hiding the message of Jesus which was a call to sacrifice, to steadfast devotion, even to the point of martyrdom. (Sproul, 1999)
