The Key to Spiritual Formation


Intention is needed if we are going to make improvements in our lives. This is true in whatever we do, and that includes spiritual formation. Spiritual formation requires us to make the choice to pursue spiritual maturity.


In my journey of spiritual formation the workbook Experiencing God by Henry Blackaby played a significant role. In Experiencing God Blackaby wrote; “Adjustments prepare you for obedience. You cannot continue life as usual or stay where you are, and go with God at the same time. That is true throughout Scripture.” (p. 127)

This is a key point that Blackaby makes throughout Experiencing God. For us to experience spiritual formation requires us to adjust our lives to God’s will. It is not enough to know correct doctrine or simply go to Church each Sunday. What is required is for us to obey God and follow Jesus wherever He leads us.
