Disciplines . . . what if we got it wrong?
There is a promise implied to those who do the Christian disciplines dutifully that there will be an abundance in the Christian life. Yet many seem to lack discipline to do the disciplines and so they assume that they will never experience this abundant life. Others are disciplined but secretly wonder to themselves, “Is this it? Where this abundant life that was promised to me?” All the above experience defeat that begins to impact many of their relationships. Far more than would like to admit simply settle into an experience of the lifeless routine of religion. What began as a life-giving relationship with Jesus is a distant memory or fading dream.
WHAT IF WE GOT IT WRONG? What if we have misunderstood what we call the disciplines of the Christian life? What if the disciplines are not so much something to do, but instead are a natural expression of my relationship with Jesus? What if the disciplines have their source and ongoing consistency somehow wrapped up in the unbroken, moment-by-moment relationship with Jesus himself? What if the disciplines depend far more upon what Jesus does rather than on my ability to be disciplined? What if there are disciplines that are as important as Bible reading and prayer time that when absent dramatically impact all my relationships?
Join us as we experience the disciplines that are within the reach of even the weakest of Christ Followers. Discover how participation with Christ in them can begin a transformation in your life that will bring about the “life to the full” promised by Jesus Himself.
