Lecture 3B75: If there is no aspect of struggle in Christian discipleship then we walk a broad and dangerous path of our own making rather than the narrow path with and in Christ that leads to salvation. Ascetic effort infused by divine grace is part and parcel of that struggle. This lecture explores the how and the why of going about that task so that, having preached to others, we are not ourselves disqualified.
