Welcome my Friends to the Second Quarter, 2019.
Whether one calls it 'Self-Denial', 'Soul Friendship', or 'Spiritual Disciplines', now, let's elaborate more on 'Spiritual Disciplines'.
I sincerely hope and pray that this series of posts will be advantageous to you for the purpose of growing in the knowledge and grace of the Lord.
Before we get started. Remember, these are 'tools', so let us not get anxious. Amen. Amen.
Continuing today, with some further posts since we began our series for anyone desiring to draw into a more intimate relationship with God through Jesus Christ, with our Introductory Post A, Wednesday, April 3, 2019; Post B, Friday, April 5, 2019 ; Post C. Sunday, April 7, 2019; Post D, Wednesday, April 10, 2019; and Post E, Friday, April 12, 2019.
We now begin to post on a bi-monthly basis on Sunday/Wednesday/Friday, until we finish.
Post 1, April 24, 2019; Post 2, April 26. 2019; Posts 3,4,5,6,7,8; May 5,8, 10, 19, 22, 24,2019, and so forth.
'The Bible has no comprehensive “spiritual disciplines list” we should practice, but it does give us commands to do certain things on a regular basis. And when we do, they produce fruit in our lives.
Here are a few “Spiritual Disciplines” or practices that will always produce fruit and blessings in our lives.
But before you read these and feel overwhelmed…
…the key is to start small and try to make them habits.
For example, it would be better for you to read the Bible five minutes per day or several days a week than to read it once a month for an hour. The key word? Habit.
Let us therefore plan to look at the following 'Spiritual Disciplines' over the next few weeks, giving you time to practice them, and with some 'examples' of incorporating some of the 'spiritual disciplines' in your daily life. In this manner you will be able to quickly see whether you find them beneficial in drawing you closer to Our Lord. If that occurs, you will be changing your life for the better. [Remember to see the Post E, on April 12, 2019 in which you will find some ideas on incorporating the Spiritual Disciplines of 'meditating', 'praying' and 'reading' the Holy Bible.
We shall include studies on the following:
The Spiritual Discipline of meditating on God's Word'.
The Spiritual Discipline of giving God thanks.
The Spiritual Discipline of Praying to God.
[*We shall incorporated these three disciplines in an example of handling stress.]
The Spiritual Discipline of Giving.
[* We will provides information on 'the Blessings of Giving to God'.]
The Spiritual Discipline of Serving.
The Spiritual Discipline of Fasting.
The Spiritual Discipline of Solitude.
The Spiritual Discipline of Silence.
The Spiritual Discipline of Simplicity.
Until our next post on Friday, April 26, 2019, may the eyes of your understanding be opened, as you draw closer and closer to Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. [Ephesians 1:18] Amen. Amen.
