This five part audio series includes the following message titles:
- The Practice of Sacred Rhythms
In this message, Chip explains that the goal of sacred rhythms is to progressively, consistently live out the life of Christ – our eternal life in this temporal world. But there’s no magic pill. Living in sacred rhythms is a process; it takes time and intentionality to cultivate the practices. It starts small but, if we persevere, we can live a life of great impact.
- Cultivating a Heart of Dependency
In this message, Ryan Ingram explains that sacred rhythms are transformational when we intellectually move them from religious piety to relational intimacy. In this first practice of sacred rhythms, Ryan reminds us that God is lavishly generous and He wants His children to be generous – but that doesn’t come naturally. When we practice generosity, it cultivates a heart of dependency and trains us to trust God.
- Cultivating Daily Connection with God
Ryan Ingram continues our study by explaining that prayer is about spending time with God. He differentiates between religious prayer (all about our performance) and relational prayer (all about being in His presence). When we practice the rhythm of relational prayer, we are cultivating a daily connection with God.
- Cultivating a Life of Faith
In this message, Ryan continues his look at the rhythm of prayer by telling us that prayer is the pathway to experiencing intimacy with God. He highlights five key areas that help us cultivate a life of prayer and faith.
- Cleansing Our Lives from Distractions
Ryan Ingram begins this message with a question: What do you do when you don’t know what to do? He develops our final look at sacred rhythms by explaining the practice of fasting. What it is, when to do it, why to do it, and how God can use it to cleanse us from distractions – so we can align our hearts with His will.
