GROW

Jesus is the way to life—and not just life after death, but life here and now. When He said, “Follow me,” He meant it. In all He did and taught, Jesus conveyed that our spiritual life takes place in our physical reality as well as in the heart. If we believe what He said about the spiritual life, it only makes sense we should do what He did.

The practices of Jesus have been recognized for centuries as the core activities of the spiritual life. In the same way a runner is equipped to compete in a marathon by the discipline of physical training, so training through spiritual disciplines frees us to live each day with the “easy yoke” and “light burden” Jesus spoke of (Matt. 11:30).

Spiritual habits do not earn us favor with God or measure spiritual success. They are exercises which equip us to live fully and freely in the present reality of God – and God works with us, giving us grace as we learn and grow.

Below you will see a resources for developing Spiritual Habits in your life. We encourage you to do these in community with others so that you can sharpen each other day by day!
