“The constant, private habit of the life of the missionary ought to be worshipping as occasion serves, this is the first great essential for fitness.”
Oswald Chambers, So Send I You, page 81
Private and prayerful study of the Scriptures, resulting in private worship and corporate worship in church, is the key to spiritual fitness for the time of crisis in everyday life, or a trial, or sickness, or tragedy, or when a Muslim or Buddhist or secular atheist or homosexual or liberal Christian challenges you, or asks you about the truth of the gospel or about God or about Christ, or other Christian truths.
“but whenever a person turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face,beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.” 2 Corinthians 3:16-18
