Transformation won't come if we don't create space for it. Transformation comes through consistently disciplining ourselves to create space in our lives to pay attention to God. If we don't "turn aside" from what's happening around us, we're unlikely to encounter God.
The first message of a two month-long series on Christian spiritual formation. We have all fallen short of the expectations we have set for ourselves, as well as those that God has for us. Thankfully, the same power that rose Jesus from the dead is working to make us more like Jesus. The expectation for Christians is to be transformed, and the end goal of that transformation is Jesus.
