Today, on Karl and Crew Mornings, we kicked off a new weekly theme: "Spiritual Disciplines". We discussed what it means to be a true disciple of Jesus, and how do we make authentic, growing disciples. Is the current church doing a good job when it comes to making disciples? Why or why not? Discipleship should be transformational, not informational. Our special guest was Tim Downey. He is Program Head for First Year Experience at Moody Bible Institute, a teacher at MBI specializing in disciplines of youth and leadership, associate pastor, and Senior Director of Campuses and Outreach at Christ Community Church in St. Charles, Illinois. Take a listen to the Karl and Crew Showcast to hear some of the best moments from today.
Today, on Karl and Crew Mornings, we continued our new weekly theme: "Spiritual Disciplines", and we discussed some key spiritual disciplines to grow our relationship with God. The scripture reference was I Timothy 4:15-16. We focused heavily on solitude and silence and shared that even Jesus practiced these disciplines (Matthew 14:23). Discipline does require effort and hard work. It can be difficult at first, but the results are so powerful. Other disciplines we mentioned were frugality, abstinence, fasting, secrecy, and sacrifice. You can hear the highlights from today on the Karl and Crew Showcast by clicking the audio button below.
