Relating To Reveal God’s Nature

August 3, 2016

“We also need to be clear on something else that is easily missed: spiritual formation is relational formation. It is easier, and therefore more talked about, to practice spiritual disciplines in an effort to feel God’s presence than to practice them in order to draw on the Spirit’s power to love well. Spiritually forming people may or may not regularly experience God with them. But spiritually forming people will grow to increasingly reveal God’s nature by how they relate.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, A Different Kind of Happiness, Page 46

Questions for Reflection:
• What spiritual disciplines do you regularly practice and what motivates them?
• Do you tend to think of spiritual growth in terms of how you unselfishly you love others?
• What’s your response to the thought that spiritual formation has more to do with how you reveal God’s nature in your relationships than how regularly you sense the presence of God?
