Cute, aren’t they?  Who doesn’t love puppies?  They’re full of joy and enthusiasm, they’re inquisitive and cute… and full of mischief and messes.  Anyone who’s ever owned a dog has probably enjoyed the puppy phase, but waited with anticipation for the completion of house training and obedience training.  At some point the “barbarians amongst us” must learn to live as a part of the family.

That’s true of Christians as well.  We all love to see new believers, their enthusiasm for the things of God is refreshing.  Their joy over being forgiven and accepted serves as a powerful reminder of things we sometimes begin to take for granted.  But… at some point these new followers of Jesus Christ need to learn to be disciples.  They need to learn how to live as active and vital members of God’s family.

That requires something.  It requires those of us who are further along in our spiritual walk to do some house training; we call it “discipling.”  The problem is, it’s not enough to tell them what they need to do, they need to see it modeled.  That means we need to be doing, ourselves, what we’re teaching these new followers of Jesus to do.

What are those things?  Well, there are several things we need to be doing.  Those are the things that we call the Spiritual Disciplines.  They, and we, need to be practicing them.  But of all the exercises involved, I think it really starts with prayer.


How do we rightly read Scripture if we haven’t asked the Spirit to open our minds.  How do we serve if we haven’t asked for direction?  All of the “Disciplines” really begin with prayer.  Is that true for you?
