Private acts of devotion draw our hearts close to God. They keep us out of the spotlight so it can shine on his good and glorious presence. God is a loving Father who wants to reward his children. However, when we settle for the praise of people, we receive our reward in full. Jesus spoke about this in his Sermon on the Mount, offering three exemplary habits of devotion as ways of grace. What he says about giving, prayer, and fasting may be applied to any acts of devotion. So find your Hat Trick (that's three) of Habits, and slide from the spotlight.

We get stuck in loops. When they're good, we call them grooves. When they're bad, we call them ruts. As creatures of habit, we cannot help but gravitate toward the predictable. This ancient problem is most tragically illustrated in the book of Judges. Generation after generation in Israel does evil, gets oppressed, cries out, receives a deliverer from God, experiences short-lived peace, and then repeats the cycle. Fortunately, God can help us break bad cycles and replace them with good ones.

God had a wonderful, vulnerable plan for keeping his kingdom plan marching forward: he tasked men and women to live it and pass it along to the next generation. Like the game of tag, there are not "take backs." The newly appointed IT person has to find someone else to pass it along. Paul tagged Timothy. Timothy would tag others. And on and on. Fortunately, succession plans are not purely up to us. God provides an IT factor to empower us.

During our early years of following Jesus, we commonly experience giant leaps in our spiritual growth. We share our faith. We read the Word. Several vices lose their grip on our hearts. These life changes feel so affirming. And then we hit a plateau, dry spell, relapse, or dark phase. Growth stalls. Doubts surface. Old habits die hard. For most of us, spiritual growth is long, hard, and slow to progress. The Corinthian church will help us understand why (and what to do about it).

Followers of Jesus have a perfect example in Jesus. He is the model. His kind of life is the ideal. The apostle Paul agonized to see the life of Christ formed in them. This, of course, is not easy because we are often at war with ourselves -- the selfish jerk within. Fortunately, we have an advocate: the Holy Spirit also moves within to make our character like Jesus's. This sermon considers the Spirit's part and ours in become more like Jesus.

Our souls need realigned. Like the spine, which is daily pushed, jostled and compressed, the soul requires adjustments. God has given spiritual disciplines to strengthen our core and build godly habits. This sermon looks at the disciplines of the Word.
