Scripture calls us to discipline ourselves with spiritual habits. The goal, however, is not self-help. The goal is God, godliness, the gospel, and holiness. This is why Paul says, train yourself for godliness. Godliness is the end.
God has clearly commanded us to do what it takes to pass on the faith to the next generation. Parents are the primary discipler, but the church also has a huge responsibility. The church can never replace the role of family but the family can’t do it well without the church. It Takes a Church.
No matter the comparison Christ is always greater. Looking in John 12–17.
