Ten Truths about Spiritual Transformation

A flame and spiritual transformation

Are you experiencing spiritual transformation?

Spiritual Transformation…


#1 Is an expected, non optional requirement of all Christ Followers.

#2 Is primarily a process, not an event.

#3 Is God’s work, but requires my participation.

#4 Involves those practices, experiences, and relationships that help me live intimately with Christ and walk as if he were in my place.

#5 Is not compartmentalized pursuit.  God is not interested in just my spiritual life; He’s interested in my life—all of it!

#6 Can happen at every moment.  It is not restricted to certain times or activities.

#7 Is not individualistic, but takes place in community and finds expressions in serving others.

#8 Is not impeded by a person’s background, temperament, life situation, or season of life.  It is available right now to all who desire it.

#9 The means of pursuing spiritual formation will vary from one person to another.  Christ followers are handcrafted, not cookie-cut.

#10 Is ultimately gauged by an increased capacity to love God and other people.  Superficial or external checklists cannot measure it.
