Summary of Donald S Whitney s Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life Book Excerpt:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Discipline is important in the Christian life, and it is important to understand what you will become. God’s elect will ultimately conform to the image of Christ, and until then, they are to grow toward it. #2 The pursuit of holiness is not what qualifies us to see the Lord. It’s the Lord who qualifies us to see Him. We cannot produce enough righteousness to impress God and gain admittance into heaven. Instead, we can only stand before God in the righteousness that has been earned by another, Jesus Christ. #3 The Bible teaches that Christians should discipline themselves in order to become mature and godly. The only road to Christian maturity and godliness passes through the practice of the Spiritual Disciplines. #4 The Spiritual Disciplines are the habits of devotion and experiential Christianity that have been practiced by the people of God since biblical times. They are the means of blessings for followers of Jesus and a part of their growth in godliness.

A Man s Guide to the Spiritual Disciplines Book Excerpt:

Spiritual disciplines are to the believer what medical school is to the doctor. A man came up to me at a conference where I was speaking and said, “Pat, do me a favor. Tell me how to be good. I already know how bad I am.” That statement captures the intent of this book – and the purpose of the spiritual disciplines. Spiritual strength, like surgical skill or athletic excellence, requires training and practice. To become the kind of man who walks with God and wields Christ’s influence in your world, you’ll want to begin a consistent regimen of spiritual exercises. In A Man’s Guide to the Spiritual Disciplines, Patrick Morley highlights twelve habits that will strengthen your walk with Christ, including: -- Experiencing God in creation -- Letting the Bible change your life -- Learning the power of prayer -- Grasping God’s greatness through worship -- Gaining strength through Sabbath -- Thriving because of fellowship -- Succeeding through wise counsel -- And more . . . By presenting each discipline with a concise overview, several examples, and application ideas to get you going, this powerful guidebook will help you develop the maturity every man of God was designed to reflect.

Spiritual Disciplines Book Excerpt:

The Spiritual Disciplines Pamphlet explains the classic spiritual disciplines that help us follow Jesus: Scripture reading, prayer, fasting, worship, solitude, and evangelism. The Spiritual Disciplines Pamphlet makes an excellent handout or Bible study on Christian maturity for a small group or Sunday school class. It addresses questions such as: What does it mean to be Jesus' disciples in the twenty-first century? Do spiritual disciplines look different in an electronic age? How can spiritual disciplines be a joy, not a legalistic burden? Includes an explaination and advice on these Spiritual Disciplines: • Bible Reading/Study • Prayer • Fasting • Worship • Service • Solitutude • Discernment • Evangelism Each Spiritual Discipline includes: • Examples from people in the Bible • Tips for getting started • How each discipline helps us to have a Christ-focused life Discussion Questions • Scripture Reading: Read two of the Bible passages from the list on page 5. In your opinion, what is the message of these passages? Read the section on “The Disciplines Today.” Some people love to read the Bible; others see it as a challenge. What ideas might work for those who struggle? • Prayer: Read one of the Psalms listed at the top of page 6 and pick one other Bible passage in that section. What is the writer of the Psalms expressing in his prayer? Is he being honest with God about his emotions and problems? In what way does this change your view of prayer? What attitude should we have? What kinds of prayers should we avoid? Pick one of the ideas in “The Disciplines Today” and share how you might apply it. • Fasting: Choose two of the passages at the top of page 8 to read. Why did these people choose to fast? Now look at the quote. How can we keep our focus on the right thing? Fasting is one of the most neglected of the Spiritual Disciplines, but it is excellent for teaching us self-control. Look at the tips. How might you practice the discipline of fasting? • Worship: People worship in many ways as we can see from the biblical examples at the top of page 9. Which of these suit your personality and circumstances the most? Look at the first point under “The Disciplines Today.” In practical ways, how can we develop the right attitudes? When we worship in a group, the experience is often different from our private times of worship. What are the benefits of each? • Service: Jesus could have forced and bullied everyone into obeying him. Yet he did not. He chose to be a servant. Pick one of the passages from the Biblical Basis section at the top of page 10, and explain how Jesus' leadership is different from the kind of leadership found in the world today. Read the tips on page 10. How will you serve others in a way that imitates Jesus? • Solitude: Many biblical leaders sought to be alone with God. Pick one of the examples on page 11 and note anything of interest to you. If you are the type of person who likes having a lot of noise in your life, how do you practice solitude? What are the benefits of going off by yourself and praying and resting? • Discernment: Look at the examples of biblical discernment at the top of page 12. Read both of the last two bullet points in the Biblical Basis section. What does discernment mean and how does it look today? Some people seem to have the spiritual gift of discernment, but all believers can be more discerning in general. Why is it important to discuss issues with other believers? • Evangelism: Read all of the points at the top of page 13. What did Jesus teach? Look at the tips. What do you see as the most important? It is often easiest and most natural to share your own story with close friends. Do you ever sense an opportunity to discuss spiritual matters? Perfect for discipleship or small groups.

Unleashing Dunamis Book Excerpt:

Wise singles will shine and lead many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever (Daniel 12:3). God loves each single adult, seeing them as precious, worthy, and complete in Christ. He always has their best interests in mind and holds their earthly and heavenly security within his hands. All single adults, including those never married, divorced, and widowed, will reap satisfaction in life when they unleash their dunamis as God intends, such as when they trust in God, the Lord becomes their everlasting strength (Isaiah 26:4). The blessed assurance of eternally good life is theirs to embrace. God is faithful and true (Revelation 19:11). Nowhere in life is there anything that reaches higher and achieves more than the love and wisdom of Christ. As church leaders reach their potential for God, they can transfer their knowledge and experience to singles so that they can attain the life they were made to live. It will be a privilege and an honor to provide what singles need for unleashing their dunamis. May God bless the church and all wise singles.

Spiritual Disciplines for Today Book Excerpt:

At your salvation, your spirit was renewed, but your soul and body was not changed. Spiritual Disciplines are given to us by God. They provide a way of sowing to the Spirit and they help you put off the “old man” and put on the “new man” (see Ephesians 4:22-24). By doing this, you “renew” your soul so it will agree with your renewed spirit. As the saying “means to an end” goes, the Spiritual Disciplines are the “means,” while the “end” is intimacy with God. By exercising the Spiritual Disciplines, we are helped to mature spiritually and are put in a place where God can work within us to transform us. If we truly want to walk with God, we will exercise the Spiritual Disciplines. Spiritual Disciplines are for everyone to use and should be a natural part of a Christian’s life, as natural as breathing. In this book, the eleven main Spiritual Disciplines – Meditation, Prayer, Fasting, Study, Simplicity, Submission, Confession, Solitude, Service, Guidance, and Worship – are described as well as how to apply them in today’s world. The author’s first two books are A Young Person’s Guide to Christianity and A Christian Understanding of Deception – Gaining an Appreciation of How satan Uses Deception.

Spiritual Disciplines Handbook Book Excerpt:

Fasting. Solitude. Contemplative prayer. Lectio divina. Have you heard about these practices and wanted to try them? Have you wandered from one practice to another not sure quite what to do? Are you overwhelmed by all the to-dos of your spiritual life? We have good desires—for a more intimate prayer life, perhaps, or deeper insight from God's Word—but we don't know how to get there. So we give up our pursuit, tired from wandering aimlessly, and end up feeling guilty and more distant from God instead of closer. In the Spiritual Disciplines Handbook Adele Calhoun gives us directions for our journey toward intimacy with Christ. While the word discipline may make us want to run and hide, the author shows how desires and discipline work together to lead us to the transformation we're longing for—the transformation only Christ can bring. Instead of just giving information about spiritual disciplines, this Handbook is full of practical, accessible guidance that helps you actually do them. Mothers, fathers, plumbers, nurses, students—we're all on a journey. And spiritual disciplines are for all of us who desire to know Christ deeply and be like him. Here is direction for our desire, leading us to the ultimate destination: more of Christ himself.

Rediscovering the Spiritual Disciplines for Today s Ministry Leadership A Journey of Proactive Spiritual Formation for Leaders Book Excerpt:

Military chaplains are highly trained professionals with multiple graduate degrees and varying civilian pastoral experience. They enter the chaplaincy after a rigorous selection process and military courses, which all must verify their calling to military ministry. Throughout a chaplain’s career, he or she will attend many continuing education seminars, civilian education graduate programs, and conferences, all provided by the military. However, chaplains are challenged with the rigorous multitasked environment of this ministry. Multiple deployments into combat have negatively impacted the personal lives of those seeking to care for the souls of the soldier. This book encourages the importance of spiritual resiliency in the lives of leaders, both military and civilian. Leaders who regularly practice spiritual disciplines will be less likely to suffer personal and professional failure, or burnout. Second, the leader’s practice of spiritual disciplines is essential to fostering positive modeling and mentoring for young chaplains and those wishing to serve. Third, practicing historic Christian spiritual disciplines will benefit those who strive to lead congregations and especially military installations in the free exercise of their faith.
