The Flywheel of Spiritual Formation

Long. Slow. Deep. Difficult. Particular.
That is a mantra that I use to help people understand the process of spiritual formation. Each of those words is necessary to understand the process.

I wish it wasn't that way. I wish that spiritual formation, maturity, wisdom, holiness, Christ-likeness, fruitfulness of missional engagements were short, fast, simple and easy. I wish it wasn't a race, a stroll would be nice. I wish it were not a battle and war, a playground park would be nice.

Hebrews 12:1  let us run with endurance

As I listen to many Christians, I can tell that is what they wish as well. That is certainly what so many of our programs and events offer.
