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
