The other day I was reading Invitation to the Jesus Life: Experiments in Christlikeness by Jan Johnson, and saw this –
“… disciplines are ways of entering the life of Jesus. As you practice disciplines, keep in mind that they interrupt our patterns of living of a self-referenced life. In these interrupted moments, you connect with God so that God can do a perfecting work in you.” (p 242)
What do you think?
“entering the life of Jesus”
“interrupt our patterns of living a self-referenced life”
“God can do a perfecting work in you”
Do any of these statements ring true for you? When has your life been interrupted for God’s perfecting work in you? What does it take to “interrupt” your “self-referenced life”?
