Christian Disciplines and Why you don't have to do any of them.
“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him” Colossians 2:6
Have you ever heard the term ‘Christian Disciplines’? Christian disciplines usually refer to a list of things you have to do to maintain your Christian walk and to me it all sounds pretty boring.
In my opinion, the Christian life should be anything but boring. At the risk of being controversial, I will say that that a Christian doesn’t have to do a single thing in their walk with God.
We don’t have to read the Bible but we get to read words which are both God inspired and breathed.
We don’t have to go to church but we get to gather with other believers and celebrate Jesus together.
We don’t have to pray but we get to talk to our Daddy God and hear his voice.
We don’t have to worship Jesus but we get to lift his name on high.
We don’t have to do anything but we get to do everything. And I reckon it makes our Daddy God’s heart sing when we come to him by choice and not because we feel we have to do it.
