The Formation of The Soul

It is very clear through the words of Jesus after he predicted his own death in Matthew 16 that he clearly identifies the importance of his disciple's souls. More than the lives themselves, Jesus makes a clear statement about the necessity of our eternality being founded in His person. In so doing he intentionally places a desperate need that they had before them, as we now have, to care for our eternal souls. Thus the context of this study is emphasized not only on specific disciplines which we will cover, but more importantly on the very nature of the formation of the soul.

Knowing God

God calls us to grow in the knowledge of Himself (2 Peter 3:18). We need to know who He is, at least begin to understand, in order to truly know and understand ourselves and why the disciplines are necessary.

Knowing Yourself

Often times we begin to know God but ignore the importance of knowing ourselves. When we truly begin to understand ourselves in light of knowing God we can journey in the disciplines far more effectively and more importantly relate better to work of God that Ephesians 1:7-8 talks about: “In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.

Lectio Divina (Part 1)

The life of discipline is an incredible journey that we are blessed to be part of. A significant part of that journey is how we work through bible intake, meditation and prayer.
