Living in the world and not being of it is no easy task. The only cure against becoming a lukewarm disciple is to reset priorities and invest in the spiritual rather than in the physical. When we respond to Christ’s invitation for an intimate relationship, we grow in our faith and become effective in the administration of God’s Kingdom work.
