Episode 8: The Discipline of Submission

Hosts: Tommy Bridges and John Fugh, Jr.

In This Episode: The Disciplines are a means to an end. The desired end of the Disciplines is freedom. There is freedom in submission. The desire to always get our own way is bondage. We’re all tempted to do it our own way. We must daily look at the example of Christ who not only submitted to dying on a cross, but he also submitted to a cross-life. When we step outside the boundaries set by God, the is no rest and there is no peace. Whatever God wants to do for you, He begins by doing it in you.

Scripture: Mark 8:34-38

In This Episode: The disease of “Constant Partial Attention” (https://www.nytimes.com/2006/11/01/opinion/01friedman.html). Accept the fact that God is in control. Until we accept this fact, we wind up exhausted. We live as though the opposite of Matthew 6:33 is true. We incorrectly believe that we must seek everything else thinking the Kingdom of God will be added afterwards. Solitude is not a place. It is something in our hearts. “Talking” is too often used to control others, ourselves, or things. If we’re silent, where’s the control?

Hosts: Tommy Bridges and John Fugh, Jr.

In This Episode: What’s controlling you? Are you content with being a child of God? Foster defines the Discipline of Simplicity as “an inward reality that results in an outward lifestyle … We deceive ourselves if we believe we can possess the inward reality without its having a profound effect on how we live. To attempt to arrange an outward lifestyle of simplicity without the inward reality leads to deadly legalism.” Our lust for status in things produces within us anxiety and worry. Three inward attitudes that produce in us that outward reality of how we live: (1) What we have we receive as a gift from God, (2) What we have is cared for by God, (3) What we have is available to others.
