? Discipleship, Leadership Development, Coaching and Spiritual Formation ?

How should we grow? How will we know?

This is a time of redefining norms for our world and for the church.

As we move through this season - people are coming back to church in person, or not. People are getting back to relationships they once invested in, or not. People are sticking with new habits they formed, or not. People are pursuing plans they once had, or not.

There's a lot to navigate.

For me personally, I would love it if God just gave us a step-by-step plan that we could follow, and then we would KNOW we were doing "it" right! 

I would love that full confidence and embrace the challenge to do all the things.

Turns out that is not how He designed our faith walk to be.

Well, not exactly.

The truth is He does have a step-by-step plan for us, but it is an individual path. You probably know the verse as well as I do, but Psalm 119:105 says, "Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path."

I wish He would just give us a list and we could check stuff off item by item, but He designed our faith walk to be one based on relationship with Him. He wants us to learn to discern His personal promptings in our lives.

I don't like that. It's risky. What if I get it wrong? What if I can't really hear Him that well?

John 16:13 says, "When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future."
This is where the faith part comes in. We learn to listen by practicing. We trust His Spirit. We obey the promptings as we sense them. We learn to discern His voice. We love Him by obeying Him. (John 14:15)
"So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves." Galatians 5:16
Whether you call it discipleship, leadership development, coaching, or spiritual formation - being transformed into Christ's image is our ultimate goal as believers. (2 Corinthians 3:18)
