Jesus never talked about people becoming Christians. He was not concerned with more religious people. Religion says behave, but Jesus says grow. If we are in Christ then we are truly alive, and it is once we are alive that we begin to grow. We become wrapped up in obedience to Christ. We commit to working for the Gospel by following, telling, growing, and multiplying. We constantly grow in maturity as we seek to live our life in a manner that resembles Jesus.
