We are going to be starting a New series beginning on May 13.
Depth, strength, wisdom and maturity — we all long to be people with
such qualities. We want to strengthen our character and deepen our
relationship with Christ. But spiritual depth requires spiritual discipline.
Today’s society looks for instant gratification and results. More. Better.
Quicker. Richer. Often the values of our consumer society shape our
view of discipleship. We demand instant godliness, overnight “success”
in the Christian life. As a result we end up discouraged and frustrated
by the shallowness of our walk with God.
Richard Foster spells out our dilemma: “Superficiality is the curse of our
age. The doctrine of instant gratification is a primary spiritual problem.
The desperate need today is not for a greater number of intelligent
people or gifted people, but for deep people.” (Celebration of Discipline
[New York: Harper & Row, 1978], p1).
