In this week’s episode of Engaging Missions, our very own host, Bryan Entzminger, shares about the discipline of the soul. He shared this topic at his church last summer, and felt led to share it with you. He uses many personal stories to fully express the importance of discipline as well as our need to seek God first. Each of us has places of spiritual weakness that need to be disciplined.

Bryan uses the analogy of physical therapy or training to capture the image. Although training is important to the soul, too much focus on training can be damaging. He shows the need for God’s guidance in our discipline so that we don’t lose focus of Him. With these illustrations and points in mind, we can grow in strength while keeping our eyes on Him.

As a listener of Engaging Missions, will give you a free audio book when you sign up for a 30-day free trial to check out their service. With over 150,000 titles to choose from, you’re sure to find one you like.

Personally, I recommend the Bible. Just about any translation. You can't go wrong to have God's word available when you're driving to work, out for a walk, or working out. It's what I did when I joined Audible over 7 years ago.
