Spiritual Formation as a Disruptive and Dynamic Journey!
God’s Kingdom has come (already begun) with the birth, death, and resurrection of Christ. This is an indisputable biblical fact.
It’s also true that his kingdom rule continues to be contested! The powers that once ran and sought to ruin his good world through sin and shame continue to exert notable force.
Even as the often slow but certain Kingdom-coming continues to make its presence known!
These two realities
- That God’s reordered rule in and through His son, our Messiah, has already begun, and
- That the powers and principalities of this present age continue to resist,
have real-time consequences in this life.
A lingering consequence of these two truths is that spiritual formation is often more like a disruptive and dynamic journey, rather than a linear and progressive trajectory.
