Discipleship

HOW CAN DISCIPLESHIP HELP THOSE OF US WHO ARE ALWAYS IN A HURRY?

We can learn how to act quickly without hurrying. Quickness is an attribute of action. Hurry is an attribute of the spirit. First, we need to recognize when we’re being drawn into hurry. At that point, stop and take time out. Then we go over how God is with us and we’re acting with Him at our side.

Hurry involves the idea that something is out of control and we must take control. Hurry is an act of unfaith.

Silence, solitude, fasting and Scripture memorization train us to respond differently to events when an immediate response is required

  1. Dallas Willard rings a bell is he the Author on the back of The Life Model Book? I know MacNutts stuff is real good but never read any Willard stuff. I really like this passage. Thanks!

  2. Yes, he is mentioned in the Life Model book, because the term “the heart Jesus gave you” originates from him. All of his books are excellent. I have read several.
