Story of Spiritual Formation from After You Believe by N. T. Wright

Notes:

Scripture Reading- Galatians 5:13-26 (ESV)

The Way of Christ- Steps of Spiritual Formation from Galatians 5:13-26

  • The goal of the journey = the Great Commandments (Galatians 5:13 & 14).
  • The Steps along the journey
    • 1. Abandon, starve & cease to gratify the desires of the flesh (Galatians 5:16-21 & 24)
    • 2. Put on the character of Christ and live into the fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23)
    • 3. Live by and keep in step with the Spirit (Galatians 5:25, 1 Corinthians 9:24-27)

Notes:

What does all this have to say to us today? (3 Take Homes)

  1. Spiritual formation requires personal energy and the Spirit’s presence.
  2. Spiritual formation is directing our loves, so our loves don’t direct us.
  3. Like fruit, spiritual formation begins as a seed and grows over time.
