God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and discipline.
2 Timothy 1:7


Discipline requires training.  It requires self-control.  It requires placing yourself in the situation before it happens.  It is not hap-hazzard.  It is repetitive.  It is not easy.  Discipline happens when we habitually choose to do things right at the right times.  Many coaches would say that if they had to choose between coaching an extremely talented team, or a team that is highly disciplined….they would choose discipline every time.  Discipline is the great equalizer.  Many people can remember a time in which they watched a team of lesser athletes beat a team of stronger athletes.  That’s usually because the team with lesser athletes is more disciplined.  Talent is great, but discipline beats talent when talent is not disciplined.  You see, executing the disciplines of sport equips an athlete to rise to new levels of play.  Executing spiritual disciplines empowers us to walk closer with the Lord.

  1. What steps can we as a team make to raise our level of discipline?
  2. What spiritual disciplines can I engage in to enhance my walk with the Lord?
  3. What people can I turn to that would help me become more disciplined in sports and in my walk with the Lord?
