For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline. (2 Timothy 1:7)
No matter where you are in your relationship with God, your love can grow deeper. What if we were so consumed by the love of God that it permeated every area of our lives? Wouldn’t our families, communities and other institutions and relationships be radically different? Please pause and pray that God will use this journey to make this more of a reality. I hope you have already started to review the information on the Disciplines (www.40daysofdiscipline.com). Remember, we are using the rest of this week to prepare for the activities starting next week. Also remember that our overriding theme for the study of the Disciplines this year is Love. So, as you read about the Disciplines, consider the relationship they have to love.
While we are in preparation mode, I know some of you are rearing to go. If you are in that category it just means you can spend more time on the question of the day below. Please consider today’s questions and share your thoughts if you feel led to do so. Many thanks to those who shared their comments yesterday!
Today’s Question for comments:
When you think about love and the Disciplines are you inclined to think:
a. If I really love Jesus, I will practice the Disciplines
b. If I practice the Disciplines I will love Jesus more
c. Both of the above
d. None of the above
Please explain your choice.
