As Christians, we all want to grow closer to Jesus, but it doesn’t happen without some intentional training. Spiritual disciplines, according to Bishop Manny Carlos, are “habits or practices that are intended to help you grow in your relationship with God…and in Christlikeness.” Over the summer, we are going to cover one Spiritual Discipline a week as we attempt to use them in our lives to grow closer to Jesus and closer in likeness to the life He lived.

We can run, hide, avoid, or medicate ourselves to hide from sorrow, pain, and suffering but God has given a pathway to engage it with Him. When we Lament, we are taking hold of the tools God has given us to process the difficult seasons, unfortunately, we rarely use it in our culture today. How do we recapture the lost art of Lament and use it as a discipline today?

As Christians, we all want to grow closer to Jesus, but it doesn’t happen without some intentional training.

Nobody wants to talk about money in church! Yet, Jesus talked A LOT about money during his ministry on earth. Our desire to avoid the topic just reveals how strong our relationship with finances tends to be; it affects our lives, minds, hearts and actions. If we don’t look at what the Bible says on the topic of stewardship in our finances, then the world will shape our view of money for us.

Listening to God is a lost art in our culture yet we see constant example of it in the Bible. We are also aware that God has place the Holy Spirit in us for a reason. Yet, very few of us act like the Holy Spirit is involved in our lives, minds, hearts and actions. What do the scriptures say about this and how do we listen to the voice of God (and act on what we hear) in a responsible manner?

The Word of God is foundational to any believers walk with Jesus. It is the means by which God has given us specific revelation of who He is, what He is like, and how we are to follow God. There are many different ways to engage with God through His Word. The important thing is that we do it! Pick a method, get an accountability partner, and ask the Holy Spirit to guide you as you read and listen to God’s word.
