    In talking with Dallas Willard recently he challenged me to help the church understand the basic start for Spiritual Formation in the church is to teach people to understand their human system and how God made them. It seems to me that is the theme of Renovation of The Heart and the compilation study “LIGHT RED” that is available from Renovator Ministries in the form of a study guide for Willard’s text. Anyone listening?

    Loud and Clear, George.

    I’m currently leading a series on Biblical Masculinity and developing godly men. I’m shock at the amount we’ve lost in our modern culture – there are very few MEN. We’ve become a society of boys in men’s bodies.

    Keep it up George – really good stuff.

    The Dallas Willard article is fantastic!

    Christianity is not a religion, it is a WAY of life. It is a journey or a path to be followed, and to continue developing and growing for an entire lifetime. Our goal is unity with Christ!

    Unity with Christ requires constant and consistent learning, application, meditation, perseverance, and a deep consciousness of the Sovereignty of God.

    To get to the root of Christianity, we must leave the comfort of the trappings of religion and concentrate on the heart of the matter: We must die to ourselves to LIVE with Christ.

    That means needing to put behind our selfish ways, our religious traditions which are meant to puff men up, and our sinful habits. Complete surrender to Christ and to recognize that the old man was crucified with Christ to make room for the new man!

    Only through this refining fire can we begin to learn the meaning of “Not I, but Christ!” That is the purpose of Spiritual Growth.
