What is a Spiritual Discipline?

Bible FAQsQ: What is a spiritual discipline?

A: A spiritual discipline draws us closer to God, deepens our understanding of who he is, and helps make us into the men and women he desires us to become.

Spiritual disciplines are practices that we willingly pursue in response to the God who created us, saved us, and guides us. Spiritual disciplines aren’t something we do out of guilt or obligation; they aren’t a way to gain God’s attention or earn our way to heaven.

The list of spiritual disciplines is inexact. Prayer, Bible study, fasting, and meditation are common spiritual disciplines. Some people end the list with these four, whereas others cite additional activities.
