 Though we are not all called to the ministry of a Pastor or Christian Writer, we are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). ____________

Freedom.  The Reward of Discipline. naturally express Christ's character through your own personality...

Its not uncommon for an accomplished musician to be able to sit down in front of a new piece of music and play it through without a hitch.  To make it seem easy, as if it required no effort.  Yet, the "freedom" to play with such skill comes only after years of disciplined practice.

In the same way, the freedom to grow in godliness---to naturally express Christ's character through your own personality---is in large part dependent on the cultivation of the spiritual disciplines.

Far from being legalistic, restrictive, or binding, as they are often perceived, the spiritual disciplines are actually the means to unparalleled spiritual liberty.

So if you'd like to embark on a lifelong quest for godliness Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life will help you on your way.  Drawn from the rich heritage left us by the early church fathers, the Puritan writers, and Jesus Christ Himself, Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life will guide you through a carefully selected array of disciplines, including:

  • Scripture Reading

  • Prayer

  • Worship

  • Scripture Meditation

  • Evangelism

  • Serving

  • Stewardship

  • Scripture Application

  • Fasting 

  • Silence & Solitude
