Going Deeper Part 1

crossesPaul warns against those that claim they want to go deeper in their faith when they’re not ready. “I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready.” But there will come a time when you are.  If you feel you are ready and you want to go places you’ve never explored in your faith, then you might begin with the Spiritual Disciplines.  While they have been around for what seems like forever, there was a resurgence with the writings of Richard Foster and Dallas Willard.

If you’ve never practiced any of the spiritual disciplines you may want to give some a try.  In Richard Foster’s book, Celebration of Discipline he notes a few that you may find worthwhile.

Here are many of them, enjoy…

Inner Disciplines
The Discipline of Meditation
The Discipline of Prayer
The Discipline of Fasting
The Discipline of Study

Outer Disciplines
The Discipline of Simplicity
The Discipline of Solitude
The Discipline of Service

Corporate Disciplines
The Discipline of Confession
The Discipline of Worship
The Discipline of Guidance
The Discipline of Celebration

In this Going Deeper series I’ll be sharing ways for you to go deeper in your faith.  But as Paul recommends, be sure you’re not choking on the the milk.
