Are you looking for encouragement in the midst of difficult circumstances? Have you ever wanted to better understand the events and experiences of your own life? Oswald Chambers offers just such encouragement and understanding as he explains how God uses six important disciplines to build strong Christian character and develop intimacy with you.
Oswald Chambers, one of the most profound and beloved Bible teachers of the twentieth century, said that “the reason we are all being disciplined is so that we will know that God is real.” Such disciplines are God’s way of molding us, of capturing our attention so that we focus on Him and not on ourselves. They are His means for us to know Him.
In Christian Disciplines, Oswald Chambers concentrates on six major “disciplines”—or areas of concern—for the growing Christian.
DIVINE GUIDANCE and the childlike expectation we should have when we come to God for leading.
SUFFERING, an expected part of the Christian life and an opportunity for God’s glory to be revealed.
PERIL and how our dependence on God makes us more available to His work.
PRAYER, an avenue to Christlikeness in its expectancy, relinquishment, and power.
LONELINESS, or solitude, an opportunity for intimate communion with God.
PATIENCE, an anchoring in God that holds us through the troubles and circumstances of the world.
