Spiritual Practices

“Discipline yourselves for the purpose of Godliness,” Paul tells Timothy (1 Tim. 4:7) and from the word discipline (gumnasia) we get the word “gymnasium.”  If we want to become more like Christ, we can’t just try hard, we have to train intentionally, responding to God’s grace at work in and through us.  We must build into our lives the spiritual habits and practices of a follower of Jesus.
