Spiritual Formation /1

Therefore, since these great promises are ours, let us cleanse ourselves from everything that can defile us, whether of body or spirit, and bring our consecration to completeness in wholehearted obedience and reverential fear of God. 2 Corinthians 7:1

When you accept Jesus as your Savior the rest of your earthly life is a journey of spiritual formation. Of becoming more like Christ, until, at the last, we are perfected. The journey has two components. Consecration (being dedicated to God’s service) is our part, and sanctification (being set apart from sin and being made holy) is God’s part.

Being in God’s service means we must make a deliberate determination to be interested only in what God is interested. And when faced with a problem, whether perplexing or otherwise, we must ask ourselves, “Is this the kind of thing in which Jesus Christ is interested, or is it something in which the force that is diametrically opposed to Jesus is interested?”

The answer you get depends on the question you ask.
