Spiritual formation is… a process of being conformed to the image of Christ for the sake of others.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
Test yourselves to make sure you are solid in the faith. Don’t drift along taking everything for granted. Give yourselves regular check ups. You need firsthand evidence, not hearsay, that Jesus Christ is in you. Test it out. If you fail the test, do something about it. …We’re rooting for the truth to win out in you. We couldn’t possibly do otherwise. II Corinthians 13:5 MSG
This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: “Go down to the potter’s house, and there I will give you my message.” So I went down to the potter’s house, and I saw him working at the wheel. But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him. Then the word of the Lord came to me. He said, “Can I not do with you, Israel, as this potter does?” declares the Lord. “Like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand, Israel.
Discipleship does not happen simply because a church exists; it occurs when there is intentional and strategic thrust to facilitate spiritual maturity.”
Christ- Likeness, Being conformed into the image of Jesus.
God loves you just the way you are, BUT He refuses to leave you that way He wants you to be just like Jesus. Max Lucado
