Every Christian should read this book. This is a game changer for the Oneness Apostolic Pentecostal movement. In actuality, it’s a long overdue message, and one that will have long-lasting effects. I highly recommend it.

“The pain of regret is far worse than the pain of discipline.

We will never have the anointing, the ministry or the revivals of our heroes if we don’t become as disciplined as they were. They went to bed early to get up early to pray, and they fasted for days on end.

We shouldn’t just pray to mark it off of our lists or read a few chapters of our Bible each day to keep up with the church Bible reading chart. We must have a deeper purpose for doing these tasks.

Discipline without direction is drudgery. In other words, discipline has to have a purpose to drive it each and every day.

The price for spiritual change is expensive, but the rewards are far greater.

The world’s ways, ideologies, and influence cannot be present in a life dedicated to Jesus because consecration’s purpose is for us to be different from the world. And, for that matter, if we are separate from the world, then sin must not be a part of our lives either. Sin ruins a life of consecration.

It would be a shame to believe that holiness is nothing more than rules or guidelines we are to live by. Holiness and consecration flow from a life given to the spiritual disciplines, a life we can only maintain by continuing to seek for Him daily.

Your pursuit will never be greater than your disciplines.

No man is greater than his prayer life.

Even though Jesus requires us to pray, praying is not to be done out of duty, but it is to be done out of delight.

A person’s appetite reveals much about their physical health. Our physical appetite can reveal just as much about our spiritual health.

Prayer is the dominant discipline in a godly life and it takes a backseat to no other task. Prayer is the guiding force to a life of consecration and spiritual discipline.

Self-denial is tough, but self-indulgence is dangerous.”
Nathan Whitley, The Lost Art Of Spiritual Disciplines

“There is nothing more urgent these days than the call to practice spiritual disciplines. Or, to put it better, there is nothing more urgent than actually practicing spiritual disciplines.”
Nathan Whitley, The Lost Art of Spiritual Disciplines

“We must all either wear out or rust out, every one of us. My choice is to wear out. —THEODORE ROOSEVELT”
Ryan Holiday, The Obstacle Is the Way: The Timeless Art of Turning Adversity to Advantage

“A man may have a perfect body, but if his emotions, mind, and will are not under the control of the Holy Spirit he will fail regularly and tragically as the husband, father, and follower God intends him to be.”
Charles F. Stanley, Man of God: Leading Your Family by Allowing God to Lead You

“Unless you and I strive to obey the Lord in our homes, we will create a spiritually poisonous atmosphere that will infect our children with disrespect for authority—both ours and God’s. Pay close attention to this principle: we reap what we sow. Our disobedience today may become our children’s rebellion tomorrow.”
Charles F. Stanley, Man of God: Leading Your Family by Allowing God to Lead You

“Spiritual weakness makes our homes more vulnerable than any other liability, which is why the head of the home needs the full spiritual armor offered by God (Eph. 6:11–18).”
