How to keep growing
Just as any athlete needs discipline for advancing, a Christian need to practice spiritual various disciplines in order to become a mature Christian.
Athletes renounce certain things they wish they could do and practice all sorts of restraints, the new born believer seeks to remove anything that hinders his growth.
And in the same way that athletes do exercises that will help them in the domain of their activity, Christians seek to practice what we call “spiritual disciplines” so that they can “be fit” in a spiritual point of view.Spiritual disciplines are the means by which God brings His fullness into our lives. They are not meant only for some “special” categories of Christians, but for everyone of us: ordinary people.
“Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win! All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize. So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadowboxing. I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified.”
1 Corinthians 9:24-27
