Conversations 4.1: Christian Disciplines as a Means to Grace
In 2006, Richard Foster and Dallas Willard sat down to talk about spiritual disciplines. Since the two of them helped bring the ancient practices into modern faith life, that wasn’t too surprising. What was special was their focus on grace, and how practicing bodily and mental discipline can give one access to grace.
To grow in grace just means there is more of God’s action in your life, so you can grow more and more. Grace is as old as the Bible. If we had never sinned, we would still need grace because we would still need God acting in our lives. That’s what we are built for.
