[ the three e's ]

Elsewhere on this web site the case has been made that every Christian believer is called both to lifelong discipleship and to full-time ministry of God's grace, mercy, love and truth.  In every situation in which they find themselves.  A great many Christians do not, however, live this way.  There are at least three common reasons why this may be so, which are represented in the diagram below.  Simply put, people act when they are able to, when they are motivated to and when they are allowed to.  This is as true of Christian living as it is of anything else.  Thus the size of the ‘do’ segment is governed by the overlap of the three circles labelled ‘allowed’, ‘able’ and ‘willing’.
