Spiritual Disciplines - means not an end

Daily spiritual disciplines of reading the Bible, worship, prayer and speaking in tongues are means to an end and not an end in themselves. They should not make us feel we have arrived spiritually and become spiritually proud because of our ability to accomplish them.
Rather they help train us to be sensitive to the Lord as we seek to commune with Him through these tools. The end of spiritual disciplines is an ever growing love for the Lord and a deeper level of walking in step with Him as He daily lead us. The disciplines allow us to enjoy the Lord even as He enjoys our company.
So let us seek Him with discipline so that we can enjoy this relationship of faith with Him each day.
