Sit. Walk. Stand.

Week 2

“Wow! I didn’t know a life could look like this!”

As we continue our series on the spiritual disciplines, it is good to start with a solid baseline of what the disciplines are, what they are intended to do and be in our lives, and what they are not. Spiritual disciplines are meant to be practices that allow us to “set our sail” to catch the “wind” of the Holy Spirit. They are not chances for us to continue to muster up willpower – only to fail in a few days. Over the next several weeks as we look at the disciplines, it is good to start by reminding ourselves that we are to be faithful in “setting our sails” and then trust Jesus and the Holy Spirit to help us change.

These disciplines work best when we have a plan and a partner. The plan will take time. A good partner will help encourage us and keep us on track with the plan.

If you would like to begin a conversation about following Jesus or more information on how He might be calling you to go, we would love to hear from you. If you have questions, please feel free to ask them here.

Over the next several weeks, we’ll be working through a few books to help guide our training. If you would like to check them out, you can purchase them below.
