Interesting analogy, Joseph. Regular practice and discipline are key to becoming "good" at anything. The preacher Charles Spurgeon said, "Depend on it, brethren, that ravishing and exciting experiences and transporting enjoyments, though they may be useful as occasional refreshments, would not be so good for every day as that quiet but delightful ordinary fellowship with “Jesus only,” which ought to be the distinguishing mark of all Christian life."
