These days the term “Spiritual Formation” is thrown around a lot. It is used just enough that we all feel like we should already know what it means and so nobody asks. But most of us really only have a small understanding of what is meant when people say Spiritual Formation.
So what is Spiritual Formation?
For Christians, it is the process of being conformed to the image of Christ (Romans 8:29).
But what does that mean?
In Matthew 22, a man asks Jesus what is the most important law.
And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.”
According to Jesus, directing all of your heart, soul, and mind towards the divine is the most important thing for you to do.
