Daily Habits of a Disciple
The Gospels articulate four foundational habits the LORD Jesus Himself practiced that He advocated for the first disciples:
- Daily companionship and worship walks with God (where prayer and conversation with God are frequent);
- Daily meeting God in His Scriptures (the Word);
- Daily connecting with supportive relationships (fellowship) with fellow believers; and,
- Daily serving others on God’s behalf (serving).
These four habitual practices seem to be foundational for all believers, regardless of their unique and customized assignments. Therefore, it should go without saying: especially for those who God assigns to lead His congregations in the important and central activities of gathered congregational worship, that they should set their sights on developing these life-long habits to a deep and central level in their own lives.
