Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life by Donald Whitney
I have read through this book about 3 times and this is not the first time I've suggested it here on the blog. It's a great book for Christians that are serious about growing in godliness. We are going through it in a class at church and I'm planning on reading it a fourth time with a discipleship group in the fall.
I'm telling y'all, if we (Christians) aren't disciplined to read our Bibles, study and meditate on the scriptures, memorize scripture, pray, serve, worship, give; we aren't going to grow in godliness like we should. There isn't a Christian around that can say she's arrived--that she has this whole thing mastered. It's a continual process--being renewed and refined for OUR JOY and HIS GLORY.
I challenge you to commit this verse to memory:
Discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness. I Timothy 4:7
