Discipleship Part XV
In this series of posts, I am sharing some short thoughts from each chapter of Dallas Willard’s book The Great Omission and then some brief personal reflections.
Chapter Fourteen: Why?
In this chapter of questions and answers of why engage the spiritual disciplines, Willard reminds us that “everything we develop from our lives that is of any value is the result of discipline, of voluntary chosen and planned activities (171), and that “there is no sense of fulfillment, dignity, and quality to life that we can have without discipline” (171,2).
This not only rings true in my experience, but gives me fresh motivation to engage in various disciplines that will allow me to grow to be more like Christ as well engage in disciplines that will enable me to live up to my sacred potential and help others do the same. So what disciplines have you engaged in that have helped you to live more Christ-like?
