of the greatest obstacles in discipleship and in discipling young
people today is seeing and overcoming spiritual compartmentalisation. We
have compartmentalised our life into different fragments — our public
life, our private world, religious activities, non-religious activities.
Jesus Christ has become incidental, maybe even supplemental in our
lives. We have simply added Him into our overcrowded schedule. He is not
fundamental in our lives. We are not able to see His Lordship in every
area of our lives.

poison. It divides what is accessible to God in our lives and what’s
not accessible to Him. Many are Christians, but few are disciples. What
then is the spiritual antidote for this?
is the answer. When Jesus calls us to follow Him, He calls us to follow
Him for the rest of our lives, through life and the whole of life. It
means walking with Him everyday, all the way, and with all our hearts.
