If I may rephrase a question posed by C. S. Lewis, why are the few only few, and the many so many? Why don’t more people accept the Gospel and live it? Why are many called, and yet only few are chosen? It would seem that it should be more likely – seeing as how most people are good people – that the many would want to live like the few.
But even though I don’t have an explanation for that, I cannot dispute that from my experience this is really true. There are so many who go through the motions (I was part of that group for so very long), and the pathway of discipleship is so very hard that I can see why many are discouraged from walking it.
