Embracing a Concept vs. Embracing a Lifestyle

An interesting discussion arose this morning out of our regular Saturday morning breakfast at Panera Bread Co. that my wife and I have adopted over the past couple of years. We were discussing something and, you know me, I have turned it into a Theological issue. (No surprises there.)

I don't know if I am prepared to develop the thought much at this point. But I put the thought out there for your comments and for me to noodle on a little more. Here is the question that I am posing:

In our Christian lives do we all to often embrace the concept of Christianity without embracing the lifestyle changes that it requires?

What does that mean? Well, to me it means do we embrace the idea of Christianity without embracing the little things in life that are so important to be true followers of Jesus Christ?

What do you think?
