Theme of the Week: The Discipline of Devotion
Bible Verse: You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. Isaiah 26:3 NIV
Scripture Reading: Joshua 1:8, Philippians 4:1-23
The Christian life is marked by doctrine and devotion. The more you know God, the more you are devoted to Him. This week, we have explored some aspects of the devoted life of the Christian man. Here are some of the highlights:
The Interior Life
“The more we expose our lives to the white-hot sun of His righteous life (for, say, five, ten, fifteen, thirty minutes, or an hour a day), the more His image will be burned into our character — His love, His compassion, His truth, His integrity, His humility.”
Ears to Hear
“We need to read God’s Word, but we must also pray that He will blast through our granite-block heads so we truly hear His Word.”
A Devoted Life of Confession
“While understanding that confession should happen spontaneously, our discipline of devotion ought to involve systematic confession as well.”
A Devoted Life of Reverence
“Reverence and concentration must be linked with a humble spirit which has worship as its conscious goal — to lift God up as worthy and to ascribe great worth to Him.”
A Devoted Life of Adoration
“At the very heart of adoration is contemplation. Numerous Psalms call us to contemplate God as seen in His creation. There is much marvelous fuel for reverent meditation from Genesis 1 to Revelation 22.”
