Notes on Discipline

  • Discipline in Christ is liberating, life-giving and jubilant as seen in the example set by Jesus.
  • “A person without self-control is as defenseless as a city with broken-down walls.” Proverbs 25:28
  • God will not give us good habits, He will not give us character, He will not make us walk aright.  We have to do all that ourselves, we have to work out the salvation God has worked in.  “Add” means to get into the habit of doing things. (Oswald Chambers)
  •  Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. (Romans 12:2)
  • The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so.Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God. (Romans 8:6-8)
  • The way one thinks is intimately related to the way one lives. (Cynthia Heald)
  • Discipline is a decision.
  • The discipline of emotions is the training of responses. (Elisabeth Elliot)
  • Discipline the body, it’s the temple of the Holy Spirit.
  • Discipline the time to make the most out of every opportunity.
  • A disciplined person is a flexible person.
  • The purpose of our discipline is to order our lives in such a way that we are made available to be used by God.
