Spiritual Disciplines – Defined

18 Aug

“The disciplines are activities of mind and body purposefully undertaken, to bring our personality and total being into effective cooperation with the divine order. They enable s more and more to live in a power that is, strictly speaking, beyond us, deriving from the spiritual realm itself, as we “yield ourselves to God, as those that are alive from the dead, and our members as instruments of righteousness unto God” as Romans 6:13 puts it.”
-Dallas Willard, p68 The Spirit of the Disciplines
