Looking forward to experiencing the Christian atmosphere at MC, but not sure how to get involved in it? Read more for a Q & A that helps both prospective and current students understand the spiritual goals of MC and learn about how to get spiritually involved on campus.
So, what really are the spiritual disciplines? They are not a to-do list, but rather a guide of how you can mature in your life as a follower of Christ. They're practices and habits. They can usher you into an intimate walk with Jesus. They aide you in becoming more like Christ. They're not practices just for the spiritually mature, nor are they just for new believers. They are life changing and they are necessary, and I hope to spend the rest of my life learning more about them.
Whatever season you find yourself in, take heart. If you are on the mountaintop, I know what that's like; if, however, you are in the deepest valley, I've been there too. I think it would be safe to say that we've all found ourselves in both places at one time or another. So today, I want to give you some advice for all seasons, some simple things to remember as you go through each day. If you declare this a season of joy, may this be life-giving, but if you find yourself in that pit, may this be a healing comfort.
