In a previous post I clarified that spiritual transformation is the ongoing process of being shaped into the image of Jesus. I’ve often pondered what hinders us from spiritual transformation. How can someone who has been a Christian for only two years seem so much more like Christ than someone who claims to have been a Christian for 20 years? Here are 4 crucial ingredients for spiritual transformation…
1. The Holy Spirit
2. Spiriutal Disciplines
3. Key Relationships
4. Pain and suffering
Checkpoint: Are you walking in the power of the Holy Spirit? Do you keep short accounts with God and others? Are you practicing spiritual disciplines? Do you have key relationships? People who walk with Christ, ask you hard questions and are not afraid to be honest with you? Do you invite these kind of relationships into your life or shun them? Are you a good steward of pain and suffering?
