Going Deeper into Encourage: Week 4/Day 3

Spur On

Prayer of Praise:

Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise.

Psalm 100:4

Disciplines

:to punish or penalize for the sake of discipline

:to train or develop by instruction and exercise especially in self-control

:to impose order upon

He punishes and penalizes for the sake of His people, like a father does his son. His discipline trains us in righteousness and protects us from wandering down paths of self-destruction.

Write a prayer of praise for His discipline which moves us toward holiness.

Return to your prayer of praise throughout the week. Add to it as you feel led.

Day 3:

Read Colossians 2:6-8

How are we to walk in Christ Jesus? What are we to “see to” or beware of happening to us?

Read 1Timothy 6:20-21

What similar warning does Paul give to Timothy?

Why?

Everyone is at risk of being taken captive by human philosophies and traditions. How can we “spur on” our self when it comes to being wary of the lies and “knowledge” of the world?
