Disciple or member?

One of the problems of modern churches is that we spend too much time making members and not nearly enough time in making disciples.  Members of churches are just like those of clubs.  They attend when they can and are active when their schedule allows.  They support their club and make small sacrifices when they can.  It is part of their life but it is not the center of their life.  People will get involved in activities when it is convenient.
