Theory and Theology

01 June 2020

By now I have come to realize I can’t think myself into a new way of living, I need to live myself into a new way of thinking. Theory and theology are so important but faith is also about how I live on a daily basis. As a christian I have tried for many years to help others move doctrines and dogmas to the level of experience and lifestyle. Discipleship somehow seems to focus more on what we believe rather than how we live. But in Jesus I see an invitation to something more than this. Jesus called people to a movement that demonstrated God’s goodness to the world. He sent us into the world to make not just believers  but disciples. Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in Heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”Matthew 28:18-20. The abundant life promised by Jesus is given to those who more than believe but to those who are disciples.
