Jesus endeavored not just to teach “the what” of the Christian life but also to model it for the disciples to see and catch… catch not just what He said, but also what He did (Mark 1:35-36). Even in His last breath, it was the "how" or "the way", that caused the centurion to be changed. (Mark 15:39)
4.1 Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life – Donald Whitney
This has been said about Don Whitney’s book:
"Donald Whitney writes in the spirit of Richard Foster and Dallas Willard. He unites the best of both of these fine authors--the bold practicality of Foster and the theological precision of Willard. In "Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life," Whitney develops the classical Protestant teaching on the means for tapping into Christ's resurrection power. Like an experienced athletic coach, Whitney offers a spiritual workout routine that each reader can format into a personalized plan for growth in grace. Integrating scriptural wisdom, historic practice, Puritan theology, and relevant illustrations, Whitney weaves together a mosaic of "the habits of devotion and experiential Christianity that have been practiced by the people of God since biblical times" (p. 15, "Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life")."
4.2 Experiencing God: Knowing and Doing the Will of God – Henry Blackaby
Look at this reflection about “Experiencing God…”
"13 years ago when I became a Christian, it was a profession of faith in Jesus Christ that began the journey. This bible study leads to a deeper understanding on how to "do the will of God". This study will take you to places you have not thought of, and to places that many would rather not really go. This is the study that changed my life in my walk with God. It took me from convert to disciple."
