Human beings are creatures of habit and cultivating specific habits are crucial to deepening one’s joy in Jesus. In this book, David Mathis shows how the Bible reveals specific habits of grace we must cultivate to regularly commune with Christ.

“For the glory of God, the good of others, and the satisfaction of our souls, the aim of the Christian life is our coming to share in Christlikeness or godliness – which is ‘holiness’ rightly understood. And all our exertions of effort toward that goal are gifts of grace.” (p. 27)

Christians are to strive for holiness while at the same time grounding all hope on what Christ has already done and the grace He so freely supplies His people. Cultivating habits of grace, or spiritual disciplines, isn’t about checking off the next box or winning spiritual accolades. Rather, it is about being whom we were created to be and doing what we were created to do, namely, glorifying God and enjoying Him forever.
