The picture (left) was taken in Milan, Italy. I was on vacation, just visiting, but having the time of my life. It's easy to approach the Christian life in similar fashion. Tourist, visitor, short-time, temporary. But Jesus is interested in seeing us engage life full-on, no holding back. We were designed to be full-time Christians, people who have invited Christ to take up residence in our hearts. It's called the life abundant. So what are we waiting for?
Welcome! I'm glad you stopped by this page! If you're reading these words, then it probably means you're also reading "The Unmaking of a Part-Time Christian." Thanks for checking in.
You'll find occasional postings on this blog site (the archives are certainly worth a look), as well as some ongoing conversation in response to questions posed by readers. Feel free to leave your comments and questions below this post, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For daily posts (4-6 weekly entries), check out my ongoing - eponymous - blog at Derek Maul. Or the more specifically focused The Preacher's Husband, updated around twice each week.
Regardless of how we stay in touch, take this opportunity to commit to a more deliberate path of following Jesus.
