For Christians, spiritual disciplines have been an effective means of connecting to God–allowing him to transform souls and lives. Much like our earthly fathers, God teaches us that discipline is necessary in life. When a child or even an adult goes through life without discipline, they are missing out on the character building necessary to make them a godly person. However, even though we’re aware of this, Christians can have a hard time disciplining themselves. Self discipline is not an easy task, no matter how faithful a Christian is. There are temptations throughout life that will constantly plague you – but if you use the Bible to help you become disciplined, these temptations won’t matter as much to you. Imagine a life where you can strongly stand up to any temptation. That is completely possible through Jesus Christ.
