DISCIPLING FOR RESULTS

2 Daily Devotional Tuesday

“But if you are without discipline, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate children and not sons” (Hebrews 12:8).

Spiritual disciplines—worshipping, praying, giving, fasting, bible study, and serving—are holy habits to be practiced for the purpose of producing desired outcomes; that is, the fruit of the Spirit that God desires to see manifested in our lives. Just as one does not simply drift into academic achievement, success in the arts, and great accomplishment in athletics, neither does one attain the things of God by happenstance. The people of God are not dreamers of what might be but, rather, we are disciplined pursuers of who God says we are in Christ Jesus—sons.
