Do you have a healthy heart? Any physician will tell you that in order to live a healthy life you must take care of your heart. And that includes both exercise and a diet low in the \'bad stuff\' and high in the \'good stuff.\' You must be disciplined. Discipline is at the root of a healthy spiritual heart, as well. For the man who desires a life of spiritual vitality, discipline is the daily habit that transforms mere desire into doing, and turns good intentions into contagious Bible reading, deepening prayer, and an irresistible urge to follow Jesus. Discipline is not a stumbling block but a springboard to spiritual growth. Dr. Wagner offers this practical tool that will guide men toward the goal of godliness. His life-changing message comes home in three sections: 1) The Need for Discipline - Discover who and what you can become through the joy of an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. 2) The Disciplines - Unlock the seven spiritual disciplines through inspiring, personal illustrations and practical, simple strategies on how to practice each discipline. 3) Encouragement to Stay on the Course - Obtain helpful ideas on how to sustain a newfound discipline by \'looking to Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.\' The Heart of a Godly Man gives you what you want and what you need to deepen your spiritual life - discipline that has the power to give you a life of purpose and joy.
