Three seemingly unremarkable principles shape and strengthen the Christian life: listening to God's voice, speaking to him in prayer, and joining together with His people as the church. Though seemingly normal and routine, the everyday 'habits of grace' we cultivate give us access to these God-designed channels through which his love and power flow, including the greatest joy of all - knowing and enjoying Jesus.
"David Mathis makes a compelling case for the importance of the spiritual disciplines, and he does so in such a winsome way that will motivate all of us to practice the spiritual disciplines of the Christian life." - Jerry Bridges, Author, The Pursuit of Holiness
"What I love most about the book is how Mathis presents the disciplines - or 'means of grace' as he prefers to describe them - as habits to be cultivated in order to enjoy Jesus. The biblical practices Mathis explains are not ends... rather they are means by which we seek, savor and enjoy Jesus Christ." - Donald S. Whitney, Associate Professor of Biblical Spirituality, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; Author, Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life
