Optional Christianity

There have been people I have known through the years that professed to be followers of Christ.  That profession and their showing up at a certain building once a week was about the extent of their Christian experience.
What part of the Christian life is optional?  Thoughts at DTTB.
They did not have time for much else.  What with career pressures, kids in sports, music, and other activities, there was not much time for other stuff like studying the Bible or other Christian disciplines.  Those are good things but they could get by without all that optional Christian stuff.

Peter does not seem to agree with this thinking, let alone this behavior.  Check it out for yourself.  Read through 1 Peter 1 and 2 and look at how Peter describes what the response to redemption should be.

You may come away from that experience with a different view of what is optional in this business of following Christ.
