"In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father." - Matthew 5:16 (NLT)

Rediscovering the Spiritual Disciplines as Modelled in the Life of Christ

Part 1: Meditation

In the first part of our Spiritual Disciplines series, Leston walks us through the first of four Inward Discipline, namley the Discipline of meditation, explaining exactly what biblically-focused Christian, contemplative meditation is, how it differs to others forms of meditation, why it helps us and what it does. But more importantly, this teaching also shows us how to actually do it. Towards the end of the teaching, Leston walks us through three practical examples of Christian meditation so that we can learn to apply this helpful Spiritual Discipline in a simple, yet meaningful way.

Part 2: Prayer

Prayer is undoubtedly one of the deepest and highest works of the human spirit. As William Carrey puts it, “Prayer – secret, fervent, believing prayer – lies at the root of all personal godliness.” To pray is to change. To pray is to have a change of perspective. To pray is to commune with God and to work with Him collaboratively. To pray is to learn a heavenly skill applied in an earthly reality. Join us as we explore this wonderful, transformative Spiritual Discipline and examine some simple, practical ways to implement it in our lives.

Part 3: Fasting

We continue with our series on the Spiritual Disciplines by taking a look at fasting. Fasting is one of the most powerful of the spiritual disciplines, helping, as Dr Bill Bright puts it, to “Strengthen and sharpen our God-ward affections. In this message, Leston explores the biblical mandate for fasting and the wonderful benefits it brings as we seek the Lord in this special way.
